DEFINITIONS

CHENONETTA
(Anatidae; Ϯ Maned Duck C. jubata) Gr. χην khēn, χηνος khēnos  goose; νηττα nētta  duck; "The unique species of this genus has the aspect of a small goose, the size of a Wigeon. It has a short, compressed bill, recalling that of Brent Geese, but also that of the Carolina and Mandarin Wood Ducks and of the Pygmy Geese  ...  It also resembles the Sheldgeese (Tadornini), looking much like a miniature Chloephaga" (Delacour 1973);"Anas jubata Lath. (Anser lophotus Nob. in Museo Academico) habitu, collo, pedibus et rostri forma Berniclis, mandibulae armatura, corporis ptilosi et potissimum speculi alaris nitidi praesentia ad Anates accedit et simili modo inter Anseres et Anates medium tenet, quo Anseres Cygnopsides inter Cygnos et Anseres. Quare forsan peculiarem subgeneris typum (Chenonetta? i.e. Anser anatinus) sistere posset" (Brandt 1836); "Chenonetta Brandt, Descr. Icon. Anim. Ross. Nov. Aves, fasc. 1, 1836, p. 5. Type, by monotypy, Anser lophotus Brandt = Anas jubata Latham." (Peters 1931, I, 152).
