A superspecies is a group of at least two distinctive species with approximately parapatric distributions. Not all species complexes, whether cryptices or ring species are superspecies, and vice versa, but many are. A superspecies consisting of two sister species is called a species pair.
- Puffinus puffinus group of shearwaters – not a superspecies, but the P. yelkouan group formerly contained therein is indeed one.
