Re: [...] Archaeopteryx 10
The nomenclature is a little tricky for the London specimen,
*Archaeopteryx macrura*, junior objective homonym of *Archaeopteryx
lithographica*. The latter name was unambiguously applied to the skeleton in
the paper that described the feather.
but for the Berlin specimen, it's a tad clearer. Dames (1897) named the
*siemensi* as a species of *A.*, followed by Petronievics (in Petronievics
Woodward, 1917, in a footnote) who coined *Archaeornis* and designated
*siemensi* the type species.
Correct. Sorry for having confused genus and species!
