Re: [...] Archaeopteryx 10

  The nomenclature is a little tricky for the London specimen, but for the
Berlin specimen, it's a tad clearer. Dames (1897) named the species *siemensi*
as a species of *A.*, followed by Petronievics (in Petronievics and Woodward,
1917, in a footnote) who coined *Archaeornis* and designated *siemensi* the
type species. So indeed, when specifying only the species name, Dames is the
correct citation, and true also when citing the species name in combination
with the genus. When citing only the genus name, Petronievics vide Petronievics
and Woodward is correct.
