Red junglefowl 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 Gallus. The genus Gallus was introduced by Mathurin Jacques Brisson (30 April 1723 – 23 June 1806), a French zoologist and natural philosopher, in the year 1760.

The genus Gallus is polytypic and comprises four species viz., Gallus gallus, Gallus lafayettii, Gallus varius and Gallus sonneratii. The species Gallus gallus was introduced by Carl Linnaeus (23 May 1707 – 10 January 1778), a Swedish botanist, physician and zoologist, in the year 1758.
