Orthorhynchus [sic] sephaniodes
Lesson and Garnot, 1827,
Bahía de Concepción, Talcahuano, Chile.
Some recent authors have erroneously transferred spelling of generic name to species name, thus referring to “Sephanoides sephanoides”. In the past, alternatively listed as S. galeritus, although historical justification for this doubtful since that name cannot be identified as referring to present species. Sister-species relationship with S. fernandensis supported by recent DNA studies. Monotypic.
Chile (S of Atacama) and adjacent W Argentina (Neuquén S to Santa Cruz) S to Tierra del Fuego; Juan Fernández Is. S populations winter N into EC Argentina.
