Re: Earliest Neornithean?

I have _Ambiortus_ as an ambiortimorph (Ambiortimorphae being the
proximate outgroup to Neornithes -- include Ichthyornithiformes) and
_Gansus_ as a non-ornithuran euornithean (placement questionable).

There was apparently a paper given at the Ostrom Symposium which put the _Ichthyornis_ among the Neornithes. Not just in the Carinatae, Euornithes, Ornithurae, Metornithes etc but as bona fide Neornithes (clade including modern birds). Perhaps when the Proceedings are published more will be revealed.
