● (syn. Numida Ϯ Helmeted Guineafowl N. meleagris) "XLII. GALLINA (Meleagris) vertice corneo. Linn. Syst. Nat. 62.2  ...  Subjectum descriptum ex Nubia erat allatum, ex Mercatoriis Nubiis, qui quotannis dictas gallinas, Simias, Psittacos Cairum venales apportant. Vox dum elevatur, vel intenditur, singularis est, scurrilem dicere vellem, sed difficulter explicatur terminis, quod auribus concipitur, dum comparatio deest. Refert aliquo modo vocem gallinæ domesticæ fœminæ, sed magis sonora" (Linnaeus in Hasselqvist 1762).
