Re: Thoughts on the biggest morphological bird analysis



I'm not excusing this practice, but ornithology has a long history of
hyphenated taxon names (e.g., Laro-Limicolae).

Sure, but I don't know how official they ever were. This particular example is still in use, but only as an insider "vernacular" for what seems to be Charadriiformes, a name that has been used for decades now.
