The "missing" Capricorn.

Capricorn was drawn as a goat and often woolly. That might explain the scales pattern of f80v.
More about this here: scales?

It has straight(er) horns like f80v in contrast with rams. It is also known as the "Sea-goat".
It is drawn sometimes as a terrestrial goat, sometimes half goat half fish.
That might explain why the scribe associated the fur of his goat with the scales of a fish.

See how compelling that idea seems to be...
Capricorn - Claude Paradin, DEVISES HERO¤QUES (1551)



More about the Sea-goat: sea-goat

So would the f80v be the capricorn from the missing(?) January (and February) page?
The pose of the capricorn might be its attacking stance like here.
Also note the short straight horns



Some Medieval woolly Capricorns:
