Hi Peter,
U.S. birding sites have it listed as Olivaceous cormorant  Phalacrocorax brasilianus, the following quote will explain the current position
[As an aside, the Neotropic Cormorant used to be known as "Olivaceous Cormorant P. olivaceus" but recent research (Browning 1989) showed that the earlier-described brasilianus was this species, and Neotropic Cormorant defines the species' range quite well. The 7th ed. A.O.U. checklist (1998) accepts these changes, although Orta (1992) didn't approve.]
See for a full explanation of American cormorants.
