Correct scientific name?

The scientific name came from Simpson & Day Field Guide to Birds of Australia. Not sure if this is the correct current name as there is another Ispot observation of New Zealand Little Shag with the same scientific name with the photo showing white on the underparts.

I think ...

... you (and Simpson & Day) are correct Ian. The other observation looks more like a Little Pied Cormorant Microcarbo melanoleucos to me and I have put up an alternative ID as that for that observation.
