I noticed that while the Meleagridiae(turkeys) and Tetraonidae(grouse) are listed as separate families under the Galliformes, their genera (Meleagris and Agriocharisfor Meleagrididae, and Centrocercus, Tetrao, Lagopus, Tympanuchus, Bonasa, and Dendragapus for Tetraonidae) are included within the Phasianidae, probably submitted by someone of the opinion that the above families are only subfamilies of the Phasianidae. Which ever way Wikispecies decides to go with this, the current condition is inconsistent. - Andrew Zepf
