Range Description

Nyctanassa carcinocatactes is known from subfossil remains from Bermuda (Olson and Wingate 2006). Reports from 1610 refer to numerous herons fitting the likely description of this species (Hume and Walters 2012), but it probably became extinct during the early 17th century shortly after colonisation by humans.
