I have spocen with a lot of people but scientifically there are only three sub-species of the green peafowl are differed as follow:

- Pavo muticus muticus, Javanese green peafowl
- Pavo muticus imperator, Indo-Chinese green peafowl
- Pavo muticus spicifer, Burmese green peafowl

Depending on where the peafowl are living, it could happen that there are small differences but official there are only three sub-species.

No, there is some recent research that suggests that Green Peafowl is six species. There may be more or less. If you look on the english Wikipedia and search for "User:Frankyboy5/Green Peafowl Species", you can get more detail about this. That is not an actual article but research done by me.

If you want, you can contact Wolfgang Mennig ( and he will at least confirm that there are more subspecies than thought, and he may tell you that his old breeding cock is a Malaysian (which he says is different from the Javan form). Here is a German publication from him about it:
