Breeding on the Bonin and Iwo Islands, this bird is listed as data-deficient, although certainly in the area of those islands they are numerous. Similar to other all-dark Storm-petrels of the region, the extensive white bases to the primaries usually stand out from some distance. Although some believe it to be a subspecies of Tristram's, it is half the weight although a similar size, and also a gregarious ship-follower.
