Vagrant. Three records. A bird was seen by Glenn Holmes between the main Island and Balls Pyramid on 14 April 1975 (Rogers 1976). One seen by a NSWFOC tour party near Balls Pyramid in early March 1990 (Richards 1990). One found beachcast by Doug Davidson at Neds Beach on 13 April 1996 (Morris & Burton 1999).

Since regular pelagic trips taken off Lord Howe Island by Ian Hutton and Jack Shick sightings of this bird are becoming more common.
