Bulweria

Bulweria is a genus of seabirds in the family Procellariidae named after English naturalist James Bulwer. The genus has two living species, Bulwer's petrel (B. bulwerii) and Jouanin's petrel (B. fallax). A third species, the small Saint Helena petrel (Bulweria bifax), became extinct in the early 16th century; it is known only from skeletal remains.

Bulweria petrels have long been considered related to the gadfly petrels in the genus Pterodroma, but recent mtDNA cytochrome b sequence analysis has proven them to be closely related to the shearwaters in the genus Puffinus and especially the Procellaria petrels.[1]
