The Phasianidae is a family of ground-living birds like partridges, tragopans, 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 Perdicinae was described by Thomas Horsfield in 1821.

The subfamily Perdicinae comprises twenty-five genera, including genus Tetraogallus. The genus Tetraogallus was introduced by John Edward Gray, FRS (12 February 1800 – 7 March 1875), a British zoologist, in the year 1832.

The genus Tetraogallus is polytypic and comprises five species, viz., T. caucasicus, T. caspius, T. altaicus, T. himalayensis and T. tibetanus.

The species T. tibetanus was introduced by John Gould FRS (14 September 1804 – 3 February 1881), an English ornithologist and bird artist, in the year 1854.
