The genus Pelecanus was first formally described by Linnaeus in 1758 in the tenth edition of his Systema Naturae‘. He described the distinguishing characteristics as a straight bill hooked at the tip, linear nostrils, a bare face, and fully webbed feet. French polymath Constantine Samuel Rafinesque in 1815.
