Savannah or San Benito [excl. princeps]

Passerculus [sandwichensis or sanctorum, excl. princeps] (= Passerculus sandwichensis) (Gmelin, JF, 1789)

The Savannah sparrow is a small New World sparrow. It was the only member of the genus Passerculus and is typically the only widely accepted member. Comparison of mtDNA NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2 and 3 sequences indicates that the Ipswich sparrow, formerly usually considered a valid species, is a well-marked subspecies of the Savannah sparrow, whereas the southwestern large-billed sparrow should be recognized as a distinct species.
