Species

The name marsh tern refers to terns of the genus Chlidonias, which are typically found in freshwater marshes, rather than coastal locations.

There are four species:

The Black-bellied Tern (Sterna acuticauda) and the White-cheeked Tern (Sterna repressa) might also be placed in Chlidonias.
