Are you sure? I thought the new rules were that you could either form the
name *correctly* or form it by dropping the final syllable and adding -idae.
In either case, "Yandangithidae" is out, as the second method would yield
*Technically, it should yield "Yandangoridae", since the last "n" is part of
the final syllable of "Yandangornis"!
