Re: Cretaceous Rahonavis-like bird from Morocco and Hesperornis rossica

The absence of a developed pleurocoel, however, indicates
that it belongs to a distinct taxon.

Or that it's not adult...?

And more stuff has been found for _Hesperornis rossica_.

*H. rossicus*. Unlike the Russian and Latin words for bird, the Greek one is masculine.

(By "inner fingers" the authors probably mean "inner toes".)

Certainly. There's only one word for both in Russian (...and Latin... and French...).
