Vescornis hebeiensis

CJES has finally put up the links to the pdf describing Vescornis
hebeiensis, the bird I remarked on here-
http://dml.cmnh.org/2004Sep/msg00219.html .  From the paper-

"The genus name "Vescornis" is derived from the Latin prefix "vesc" (thin,
attenuated), indicating the short
and undeveloped alular digit and other ungual phalanges of  the manus.
Species name "hebeiensis" is derived from the locality of this bird, the
Hebei Province."
