- Chubut Steamer Duck
Chubut Steamer Duck Conservation status Scientific classification Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Aves Order: Anseriformes Family: Anatidae Genus: Tachyeres Species: T. leucocephalus Binomial name Tachyeres leucocephalus
Humphrey & Thompson, 1981
It is the most recently recognized species of steamer duck, being described only in 1981. This is because it is only found along a rather small and sparsely populated stretch of coast around the Golfo San Jorge in southern Chubut and northern Santa Cruz Provinces, and because steamer ducks in general look fairly similar in plumage.
