Neochen barbadiana (Brodkorb)

Barbados Goose (Neochen barbadiana)

The Barbados Goose was described in 1965 based on fossil remains that had been found on the island of Barbados in the Lesser Antilles.

The remains were dated to Late Pleistocene age, but the form might well have survived into the early Holocene and is thus mentioned here for the sake of completness. [1][2]
