History

named about 1963 by officials of Kenai National Moose Range, probably for the Northern Phalarope (Lobipes lobatus), the little swimming Sandpiper, which breeds from northern Alaska to the Aleutian Islands and is of great economic value, destroying immense numbers of mosquitoes and mosquito larvae. (Pearson, 1944, pt. 1, p. 217).
