Re: Turtles and Crocodylians are not Reptiles

I'm left wondering where non-avian dinosaurs and many other taxa fall in this.

Looks like they simply haven't been considered. Looks like it's a purely neontological classification.

I think the ranks are to blame. I wrote to the person who sends the CNAH e-mails to everyone and their brother...

Also, Osteichthyes is disbanded (or at least not mentioned), but,
strangely, a paraphyletic Sarcopterygii (now a class) persists.

Alternatively, whoever made the classification doesn't know that coelacanths and lungfish aren't sister-groups. I asked.
