In Mongolian, as in many languages, the rostratulids are identified as a kind of snipe. In the case of Mongolian, the name used is Хараалж kharaalj, which is otherwise used for birds belonging to the genus Gallinago (snipe) of the Scolopacidae.

Similarly, Inner Mongolian ornithologists use the term Зараг zarag, a term normally used for the Scolopacidae.

ORNITHOLOGICAL SPECIALISATION

In the regularised terminology of 2007, the Painted Snipe has been given its own distinct name, Хараалжир kharaaljir, in order to distinguish it terminologically from Gallinago. The term is not found in ordinary Mongolian dictionaries.
