Heads up: Some or all of the identifications affected by this split may have been replaced with identifications of Apodidae. This happens when we can't automatically assign an identification to one of the output taxa. Review identifications of Apus 6611

Taxonomic Split 132908 (Committed on 11-24-2023)

Alpine Swift Apus melba and Mottled Swift Apus aequatorialis are now placed in the genus Tachymarptis, as Tachymarptis melba and Tachymarptis aequatorialis respectively, based on morphological and feather louse differences (Brooke 1970, 1972) and phylogenetic data (Päckert et al. 2012), and now aligning with e.g., Gill and Wright (2006, IOC v.1.0).
