    Didn't saw nothing that wrong, although the domestication reference may be misleading since there are species of the genus that remain undomesticated, anyway Coturnix is the Genus name, not the species name, which in case of Japanese Quail is Coturnix Japonica, and in case of european common quail is Coturnix Coturnix, Button quail is a "street name" for the bird called Asian Blue Quail which in scientific classification goes with the name Coturnix chinensis thence the photo in the Coturnix genus article.
    "True Button quails" are a family of quails called Turnicidae that resemble "true quails" in physical appearance.
