Iaceornis Clarke, 2004 - (YPM 1451 <- Ichthyornis dispar, Vultur gryphus,
Struthio camelus, Tetrao major, Vultur gryphus)
HAHAHA! Through a typo, Clarke inadvertently defined her new taxon
Iaceornis as a junior synonym of Apatornis! And unlike the other defined
genera, she never specifies what species the reference specimen is the type
specimen of in the definition.
marshi Clarke, 2004 - the species that includes YPM 1734.
Poor, poor genusless marshi.
