Asio flammeus galapagoensis, commonly known as the Galapagos Short-eared Owl and Short-eared Owl, is one of the ten recognized subspecies of Short-eared owl, which vary in terms of location and coloration. Perhaps the most distinctive of these subspecies is Asio flammeus galapagoensis, which has extremely dark plumage and larger black regions around the eyes [source].

As its common name suggests, the Galapagos Short-eared Owl is only found in the Galapagos islands.
