Summary

The German equivalent of the English bird-name Blackheaded Gull is Lachmöwe. This name as well as its source, the denominationLarus ridibundus L. 1766, does not fit the gull in question. By tracing its history backward to Catesby's “Laughing Gull”, namedLarus atricilla by Linnaeus in 1758, it is shown that the latter had been misled in 1766 by Brisson 1760 who took the European species to be a variety of the American one and ascribed the laughing call to either of them.
