In past, sometimes treated as conspecific with P. cahow, but molecular studies indicate that the two are separate species#R#R. Commonly considered conspecific with P. caribbaea (which see). May divide into two taxa, possibly at species level, given differences in morphology, timing of records at sea, and genetics#R#R. Monotypic.
