Fregata minor magnificens
Santa Fe Island, Galapagos Archipelago.
Formerly included in F. aquila or sometimes in F. minor. Galapagos population has been suggested to merit treatment as a separate species, on basis of morphological and genetic data#R; at the other extreme, races lowei and rothschildi, supposedly separable on length of wing, tail or bill, have commonly not been accepted; further study required. Three subspecies currently recognized.
