Abstract (in english)
   Skeletal remains of the family Phasianidae from the early Miocene (MN 2a) of Saint-Gérard-le-Puy in France were restudied with the following results: Palaeortyx brevipes Milne-Edwards, 1869 was synonymized with Palaeortyx gallica Milne-Edwards, 1869 and Palaeortyx phasianoides Milne-Edwards, 1869 was transferred from the Phasianidae to the Anatidae, where it was synonymized with Mionetta blanchardi (Milne-Edwards, 1963). In addition, Palaeortyx intermedia Ballmann, 1969b was synonymized with Palaeortyx longipes Milne-Edwards, 1869. Two quail species, Palaeortyx gallica Milne-Edwards, and Palaeortyx longipes Milne-Edwards are known from Saint-Gérard-le-Puy
