Smew

Smew: Mergellus albellus is a species of duck It is somewhat intermediate between the typical mergansers (Mergus) and the goldeneyes (Bucephala), the only member of the genus Mergellus. Sometimes included in Mergus, this genus is distinct (though closely related) and might actually be closer to the goldeneyes. The Smew has interbred with the Common Goldeneye (B. clangula). An unnamed fossil seaduck, known from a humerus found in the Middle Miocene Sajóvölgyi Formation (Late Badenian, 13–12 million years ago) of Mátraszõlõs, Hungary, was assigned to Mergus.
