If these lumpings are correct, and if _Jeholornis_ is sunk into
_Shenzhouraptor_ as a previous post points out:
"Ji Qiang, Ji Shu'an, You Hailu, Zhang Jianping, Zhang Hongbin, Zhang
Nanjun, Yuan Chongxi & Ji Xinxin, 2003. "An Early Cretaceous Avialan Bird,
Shenzhouraptor sinensis from Western Liaoning, China," Acta Geologica
Sinica 77(1): 21-26 [March 2003].
The latter sinks Jeholornis prima as a junior subjective synonym of
Shenzhouraptor sinensis by publication priority (July 15, 2002 versus July
25, 2002). "
... then all four genera would become one! Mama mia!

Only to tell that Dr. Zhonghe Zhou wrote to me that it consider
Yandangornis and Jixiangornis synonim of Jeholornis.
Probably for Jixiangornis he is right, but if I remember correctly the
fore and hind limb proportions of Yandangornis are quite different.
