Re: Shandongornipes muxiai 120-million-year-old fossilized footprints
Quoting Janet m vandenburgh <email@example.com>:
Apparently the honoree of the species epithet is a teenage girl. If
this were a body-fossil name, it would have to be emended to *muxiaae*
(yuck; I think I would fudge it to *muxiae*). Does ichnotaxonomy have
any such similar rules?
