The Kermadec Storm-Petrel Pelagodroma (marina) albiclunis is a taxon, either species or subspecies, that is currently suspected to breed only on islands of the Kermadec Islands Group, north of New Zealand, though it may have previously bred at both the Norfolk and Lord Howe Island Groups. Notes on recent sightings of the Kermadec Storm-Petrel from near Lord Howe Island and the New South Wales coast are given. There remains the possibility that this taxon still breeds in the Lord Howe Island Group.
