    I saw the name Coturnix.

    I am laughing as I write this.

    Codorniz is Spanish for "Quail".

    What is this anglicized species?

    Oh, and I am laughing for reasons not known outside of my horrid sense of humor.

    Is it a genus?

    Never mind.

    Coturnix is Latin for Quail, hence the transliteration into Spanish.

    Sorry if I sounded silly.

    Coturnix - Latin for Quail

    Codorniz - Spanish for Quail

    So, saying Coturnix Quail would be the equivalent of saying "Quail - Quail".

    Example: naming your daughter "Colleen". It's like naming her, "Girl - Girl".

    Example (2): A PCMCIA. I need to install a PCMCIA card. "I need to install a "Card - Card".

    Maybe I need a "life-line"?

    Oh, and I am not trolling or trying to be insulting. My FIL just delivered 94 Quail eggs to be incubated, and I reading this forum for information. Sorry if I sound a bit scatter-brained.
