(Anatidae; Ϯ Orinoco Goose N. jubata) Gr. νεος neos new; χην khēn, χηνος khēnos goose; "The genus Alopochen Stejneger, as at present constituted, contains two recent and three fossil species. The former are Alopochen aegyptiaca, from Africa, and Alopochen jubata, from South America. Such widely separated ranges naturally raise a question regarding the generic identity of these two living species, which doubt has already found expression in the statement of the most recent authority of the family Anatidae [Salvadori 1895]. Examination now shows that these two species are really generically different; and since Anas aegyptiaca Linnaeus is the type of Alopochen, a new generic name is necessary for Anser jubatus Spix. Neochen,2 gen. nov. ... Type.— Anser jubatus Spix. ... 2 Nεος, novus; Xην, anser." (Oberholser 1918).
