Range Description

Falco duboisi is known only from subfossil bones collected by Bertrand Kervazo in the Grottes des Premiers Franais on Runion (to France) in 1974 (Cowles 1994). The only historical record of small falcons is of the emerillons reported by Dubois in 1671-2 as distinct from pieds jaunes and papangue, both of which probably refer to Reunion Harrier Circus maillardi (Cowles 1987). The specimens are deposited in the Musum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris (Cowles 1994).
