Hip-hip-hooray! :-)

While on the topic of new clade names, stay tuned for a new molecular-based mammal clade: Pegasoferae. This is a proposed clade comprising Chiroptera, Perissodactyla, Carnivora and Pholidota. I haven't seen the paper, just heard the name. At least the name (Pegasoferae) shows some imagination (though I'm not convinced such a clade actually exists).
