- Caprimulgus solala
This species was described after a roadside kill in 1990 where only one wing was collected. The exact appearance is uncertain.
- Most likely dark, relatively unmarked plumage
- Rounded wing with large buff spots on wing-coverts and a broad buffish-white band, almost midway along the outerwing (across the four outer primaries)
- White tips at the outer two tail feathers (at least)
Probably similar to female Pennant-winged Nightjar.
Nechisar plains in Ethiopia.
The status of this species is unknown, most likely scarce and local. The first sighting took place recently in 2009.
