The scientific name is from Ancient Greek. Ichthyaetus is from ikhthus, "fish", and aetos, "eagle". Order: Charadriiformes, Family: Laridae, Genus: Ichthyaetus, Species: Ichthyaetus ichthyaetus (Pallas, 1773, Caspian Sea), Synonyms: Larus ichthyaetus.

Pallas's Gull (Larus ichthyaetus)
French: Goéland ichthyaète German: Fischmöwe Spanish: Gavión cabecinegro
Other common names: Great Black-headed Gull
Taxonomy: Larus Ichthyaetus Pallas, 1773, Caspian Sea.
Some recent authors place this species, along with L. relictus, L. melanocephalus, L. hemprichii, L. leucophthalmus and L. audouinii, in genus Ichthyaetus (the “black-headed gulls”, even if some lack black head). Despite its large size, this species’ behavioural repertoire appears typical of that of “hooded gulls”, although considered distinctive by some; possibly a link between the “hooded” and the “white-headed gulls”. Monotypic.
