Alectoris barbara (Bonnaterre, 1790 [? 1791–1792]) [see the note below]



  • Bonnaterre's volume on 'ornithologie' was part of the 196-volume-strong Encyclopédie Méthodique which was issued in many "livraisons". The problem is that although the 'ornithologie' volume is dated 1790, much of the text was actually added in the 1791 and 1792 livraisons, and it's very difficult to determine when Perdix Barbara text was precisely added.
