Fossil record

  • Pavo bravardi (Early – Late Pliocene) – Gallus moldovicus, sometimes misspelt moldavicus, may be a junior synonym
  • Gallus aesculapii, a Late Miocene – Early Pliocene " junglefowl" of Greece, may also have been a peafowl.

In the Pliocene on the Balkan peninsula peafowl (Bravard's peafowl) coexisted with ptarmigans (Lagopus) [1] Peafowl were widely spread on the Balkan peninsula and the Southeast Europe until the end of the Pliocene. [2]
