(syn. Thalassarche Ϯ Yellow-nosed Albatross T. chlororhynchos) Gr. νεος neos  new; genus Albatrus Brisson 1760, albatross; "The bill of the first-named [T. chlororhynchos] is longer and narrower than that of the second [T. chrysostoma], but the peculiar reduction of the culminicorn at its posterior end to a sharp point, distinctly and widely separated from the frontal feathering by the fleshy membrane extending upon it, renders its identification easy. In addition, the base of the lower mandible approaches a more perfect line than the other members, and in this resembles Phœbastria. I would consider it subgenerically separable from Thalassogeron (s. str.), and propose for this form the subgeneric name NEALBATRUS, with type the only species Th. chlororhynchos (Gm.)"
