Formerly lumped with Broad-billed, this species is common in Antarctica and many subantarctic regions. Breeding on the Peninsula, it disperses north and into the Humboldt Current, an area where Broad-billed dosen't occur. Said to be one of the most readily identified prions, due to the dark partial collar.
