(syn. Pygoscelis Ϯ Adélie Penguin P. adeliae) Portmanteau of surname Pucheran (after Jacques Pucheran (1817-1894) French zoologist, explorer) and genus Dasyramphus Hombron & Jacquinot, 1853, penguin; "Gray in 'The Genera of Birds' vol. iii. July 1846, p. 640, uses the genus Eudyptes of Vieillot. A footnote says that this embraces Dasyramphus of MM. Hombron and Jacquinot, 1846. This is the first appearance of Dasyramphus, and it must be put as a synonym of Eudyptes. On p. 641 Gray makes Pygoscelis brevirostris a synonym of E. adeliæ, which he makes the "type of Dasyramphus Hombron & Jacquinot, 1846." However, on page priority Dasyramphus is a synonym of Eudyptes, and I propose PUCHERAMPHUS, nom. nov., with Catarrhactes* adeliæ Hombron & Jacquinot as type.  ...  *[Brisson's original spelling of this genus was Catarractes, Orn. i. 1760, p. 52, but later authors have incorrectly added an "h" (Catarrhactes). The genus is also sometimes wrongly attributed to Brandt, who wrote the name Catarhactes in describing the Macaroni Penguin as Catarhactes chrysolophus, Bull. Acad. St. Petersb. ii, 1837, p. 315. -ED.]" (Mathews 1935).
