Proper Vernaculars



I'm having a bit of a time figuring out how to correctly refer to members
of certain taxa. Could someone tell me which is more proper for a member
of ...

... Tetanurae, tetanuran or tetanurine?
... Neornithes, neornithean or neornithine?
... Ornithothoraces, ornithothoracean or ornithothoracine?
... Neognathae, neognath, neognathe, neognathan, or neognathine?

Muchas Danken--
