Hi Lorne,

Short answer: it's in between. Seabird specialists such as Tony Palliser
and Pete Milburn have been following the revised taxonomy of albatrosses,
which can be found at
It's still a bit unofficial, I suppose, because it's not official
Australian list stuff. Campbell Albatross is the old impavida subspecies of
Black-browed, which breeds in New Zealand. Campbell Albatross is the
proposed new species name.

>is it, a sub-species, or a distinct species?
