Size is very subject to
evolutionary pressure, and tends to change quickly in all sorts of
circumstances.  For this reason, it's not much used in systematics.

Well, it is used a lot in the systematics of taxa with determinate growth (birds, mammals).

Certain fossil representatives might therefore be oversplit... who knows...
