Arctic Fox

This picks up on a discussion that began on the fly swap thread.

I have never tied with "arctic fox" or "foxtail". How does "arctic fox" differ from "foxtail"? (I know arctic foxes all have tails.) My question is, more precisely I hope, how do the fly tying and fishing properties of material generally described as "arctic fox" differ from material described simply as "foxtail"?

The reason I ask is that I just bought -- sight unseen -- a black-dyed foxtail.

Thanks
