Included are three new species: A. bulleri from Diomedea bulleri, A. edwardsi from Puffinus lherminieri, and A. oceanodromae from Oceanodroma hornbyi. There are 5 new synonymies: A. pinguis (Kellogg) (= Menopon petulans Kellogg & Chapman), A. brevifimbriatum (Piaget) (= Procellariphaga daptionis Eichler and A. oscheri Timmermann), and A. paululum (Kellogg & Chapman) (= A. fraterculae Timmermann and A. pickarskii Timmermann). A key to the species is given.
