RE: Pterosaur origins



I wrote:

_Coelurus_ and _Tanycolagreus_ form a clade (Coeluridae) at the base of the Tyrannosauroidea.

(from Senter's paper)

Under this topology, would Coeluroidea have priority over Tyrannosauroidea as the least inclusive clade which includes _Coelurus_ and _Tyrannosaurus_? Coeluridae was named by Marsh (1881), and Tyrannosauridae was named by Osborn (1906), and both Coeluroidea and Tyrannosauroidea are coordinated taxa.

Cheers
