Asarcornis scutulata (White-winged Duck)

Synonyms: Asacornis scutulata; Cairina scutulata

Wikipedia Abstract

The White-winged Duck or White-winged Wood Duck (Asarcornis scutulata) is a large species of duck, formerly placed in the genus Cairina and allied with the dabbling ducks. However, mtDNA cytochrome b and NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2 sequence analysis and the biogeographical pattern of distribution indicate that the anatomical similarity to the Muscovy Duck is deceiving.
