|Descriptions available in SINAV 3:6 "Appears smaller than House Swift. Short, stout body contrasts with long, oar-like wings which ends in a sharp tip. Tail, short, appearing tail-less and rounded. Flight, straight but with twittering wingbeats. Bird appears all dark.". The record is doubted in both Wang & Hails (2007) and Lim (2009) - the author of the latter literature being the very observer of this record. We defer to their judgements.|
|Verdict||Not accepted (Unverifiable)|
