RE: No new thyreophorans for 2010?!?

It appears to be the same as the list I compiled, except I disagree with their 
inclusion of *Psittacosaurus gobiensis.*  True, the paper describing *P. 
gobiensis* is dated January 22, 2010, but the same issue of Proceedings also 
contains descriptions of *Beishanlong,* *Tianyulong,* *Xiongguanlong,* etc.- so 
why is only *P. gobiensis* listed as having been published in 2010?  I have 
heard that people did receive their printed copies of this issue before the end 
of 2009, so the cover date is not accurate.

I think the following enantiornithean birds also qualify for the 2010 list, 
contra Wikipedia.  The issue of Irish Journal of Earth Sciences they are 
published in is dated 2009, but in the paper it says, "Received 26 August 2009, 
Accepted 11 January 2010".

*Elbretornis bonapartei* Walker & Dyke 
*Martinavis minor* Walker & Dyke 
*Martinavis saltariensis* Walker & Dyke 
*Martinavis whetstonei* Walker & Dyke
