Himalayan monal taxonomy

The Phasianidae is a family of ground-living birds like partridges, tragopans, pheasants, peafowls and chickens.

The family Phasianidae was first introduced by Thomas Horsfield M.D. (May 12, 1773 – July 24, 1859), an American physician and naturalist, in the year 1821.

The family Phasianidae is tentatively divided into four subfamilies, viz., Perdicinae, Meleagridinae, Phasianinae and Tetraoninae. The subfamily Phasianinae was described by Thomas Horsfield.

The subfamily Phasianinae comprises sixteen genera, including genus Lophophorus. The genus Lophophorus was introduced by Coenraad Jacob Temminck (31 March 1778 – 30 January 1858), a Dutch aristocrat, zoologist and museum director, in the year 1813.

The genus Lophophorus is polytypic and comprises three species viz., Lophophorus lhuysii, Lophophorus sclateri and Lophophorus impejanus.

The species Lophophorus impejanus was introduced by John Latham (27 June 1740 – 4 February 1837), an English physician, naturalist and author, in the year 1790.
