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.

According to the title page of the PDF version, this paper will be issued September 7, 2004. Is the print version actually out now, or could it be delayed to correct this mistake?
