Furthermore every species of Lagopus (even L. leucurus, the whitest of all) has its first set of remiges coloured brown.
Six or seven remiges were attached to the hand, ten to the ulna.
remiges supra fuscae, ad marginem externum apicemque leviter albido-notatae; subtus pallide fuscae.
Quill feathers of the wing (remiges) and tail (rectrices); the former are attached to the hand and forearm.
The wing of the Penguin has nothing comparable to the remiges of other birds.
The remiges remain sheathed, but the body feathers emerge from the tips of the sheaths.
The plumage of the remiges of the wings of every species of owl that I have yet examined is remarkably soft and pliant.
The quill feathers include two groups, the remiges or wing quills, and the rectrices or tail quills.
The remiges are thirteen in number, four of which answer to primaries.
Forming a vast expansion of the bony and fleshy framework are the quills, or flight-feathers, called collectively the "remiges."
