Country checklist and status
We are delighted that our Corporate Sponsor iGoTerra has made its country checklists, including subspecies (IOC or Clements) as well as all other species groups like mammals, butterflies etc. available through the ABC website. The only thing required is a Basic membership / registration which is free of charge. Go to Equatorial Guinea checklists. If you are already a member of iGoTerra, you will be taken directly to the country page. In case you are not a member, you will be redirected automatically to the registration form and from there can go straight to the country page.
ABC and other checklists
You can download and print an ABC / Dowsett checklist for Equatorial Guinea. The ABC lists follow the taxonomic sequence and names of Birds of Africa Volumes I-VII and are kept up to date with published and peer-reviewed records.
The Gulf Of Guinea Conservation Group website at http://www.ggcg.st also contains the BOU checklist for the islands of Bioko and Annobón.
|Annobón White-eye||Zosterops griseovirescens||a|
|Fernando Po Speirops||Speirops brunneus||b|
Some authorities raise Annobón Paradise-Flycatcher Terpsiphone smithii but the African Bird Club treats this as a subspecies of Red-bellied Paradise-Flycatcher T. (rufiventer) smithii. Some authorities raise Fernando Po Swift Apus sladeniae but the African Bird Club treats this as a subspecies African Black Swift A. (barbatus) sladeniae.
