Hi.

Bird of the subspecies mesonauta?

I believe that the form indicus is more likely  given its range of occurence.

Hi again.

Sorry, yes, you're right, it is most probably indicus. In fact, in the recent book of Howell & Zufelt (2019), Oceanic Birds of the World. A Photo Guide, they say that in this area the subspecies present is P. a. indicus, possibly a different species from typical P. aethereus.
