Cabot's or Cayenne Tern

Thalasseus [acuflavidus or eurygnathus] (= Thalasseus acuflavidus) (Cabot, S, 1847)

Cabot's tern is a tern in the family Laridae formerly considered as a subspecies of the Sandwich tern. It has since been shown to be more closely related to the elegant tern. The genus name is from Ancient Greek Thalasseus, "fisherman" from thalassa, "sea". The specific acuflavida is Latin from acus, "needle", and flavidus, "yellowish". The IOC recognizes the bird as distinct, but most other taxonomists, including both committees of the AOU, consider it conspecific with the Sandwich tern. Source: Wikipedia
