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 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.

Correct. Sorry for having confused genus and species!
