genus belonging to the order of gallinx. The 
head is covered with feathers which bend_ back-

. 1. P/.vo aldus, the white peacock, is, as its 
name imports, entirely white, not excepting even 
the eyes of the train, which it is neverthelefs eafy 
to trace out. This variety is, in Latham's opinion, 
more common in England than el fe where. He

cies having the external inarms of the plumage of 
the male.
