Sunda Scops-owl

Indonesia : Celepuk Reban

Scientific name : Otus lempiji Horsfield, 1821

Probably forms superspecies with O. mentawi, O. bakkamoena, O. lettia, O. semitorques, O. fuliginosus and O. megalotis. Frequently treated as race of O. bakkamoena, and sometimes considered to include as race or to be conspecific with O. lettia, but vocalizations distinct. Race cnephaeus apparently differs vocally, may be separate species; condorensis doubtfully distinct from nominate. Six subspecies recognized. [ more >> ]
