Author Joseph Wolf (1820–1899)

Meller's duck (Anas melleri) is a species of the dabbling duck genus Anas. It is endemic to eastern Madagascar. Although a population was established on Mauritius in the mid-18th century, this is on the verge of extinction due to habitat loss and competition by feral domestic ducks. The species name of this species is after the botanist Charles James Meller, and its generic name is from the Ancient Greek for a duck. Order: Anseriformes, Family: Anatidae, Subfamily: Anatinae, Synonyms: Anas platyrhynchos melleri.
