This beast in portuguese heraldry is called a serpe, a winged snake
(or serpent). It is neither a (two legged) dragon nor a (four legged) wyvern,
but a legless beast whose english name I dont know. It shows also on the
municipal arms of Serpa (canting arms), in argent,
and on the crest of the portuguese royal arms,
in vert lagued gules.
