Re: Darwin's young dead pet from Messel
Stunning, stunning, stunning.
Unfortunately, one of the stunning things about it is that there is no
phylogenetic analysis. Grand pronouncements about the total uprooting of
Paleogene primate phylogeny, yes, but no analysis. Just a few characters
optimized on a tree with three (!) taxa, one of which is *Darwinius*.
Does PLoS ONE "deposit at least 100 identical and durable copies in public
libraries on at least five continents"? If not, the name *Darwinius
masillae* does not exist according to the ICZN...
