Folklore Question

One of the things I learned from D&D is that there's a type of vampire known as a Pengallen. This vampire feeds by detaching its head and internal organs from the body and sending them off -- the head with the organs dangling from it -- to feed.

So, I'm trying to find a source that isn't a roleplaying game for this, some indication of what the folklore is, whether there are male, as well as female, Pengallen, or whether D&D made it up out of whole cloth. I don't think it did, but I could be wrong.
