Identification, distribution and status of the Forest Owlet Athene (Heteroglaux) blewitti

Forest Owlet (Heteroglaux blewitti) Science Article 1

abstract

Re-evaluation of specimen and literature evidence established that only seven study skins of the Forest Owlet Athene (Heteroglaux) brama were ever collected, and only between 1872 and 1884. Examination of all seven specimens elucidated numerous diagnostic characters as well as the localities at which the species was collected, and led to the species?s rediscovery in November 1997.
