_Changchengornis hengdaoziensis_



The new JVP (3/15/99) arrived today, featuring "A New Late Mesozoic 
Confuciusornithid Bird from China,"  by Ji Qiang, Luis Chiappe, and
Ji Shu'An.  Two nice photos and interpretive drawings of the slab and
counterslab.  "Etymology--_Changcheng_ (Chinese):  Great Wall; 
_ornis_ (Greek): bird; _hengdaozi_, referring to the stratrigraphic horizon
where it was collected."
