Dear all,

I am reading the latest issue of the Oriental Bird Club's journal BirdingASIA at the moment. In a letter to the editor by the authors of an article from a previous edition there is a mention of a species of Ninox, "New Zealand Morepork Ninox novaehollandiae".

Is this a taxonomic change that missed Christidis & Boles 2007? I have done a search on the net and trawled through my own references and can find no mention. Can any Birding-Ausers shed any light?
