Olson’s Petrel (Bulweria bifax)

Olson’s Petrel was described in 1975 based on fossil remains found in Pleistocene deposits on the island of Saint Helena; further remains of the species were subsequently also found in Holocene deposits.

The species disappeared shortly after the first human settlers arrived on the island in 1502.
