Re: Looking for references on the osteology of the Hoatzin

Dear Dan,

Here are a few suggestions:

Marceliano, M. L. V., 1995. Estudo osteológico do cranio de Opisthocomus hoazin (Müller, 1776) (Aves: Opisthocomidae), comparado com algumas espècies de Cracidae, Musophagidae e Cuculidae. Boletim Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi Serie Zoologia 12: 95-246.

Sibley, C. G., and J. E. Ahlquist. 1973. The relationships of the hoatzin. Auk 90:1-13.

Sych, V.F. 1988. Caractéristiques morphologiques de la musculature de l'extrémité pelvienne chez Opisthocomus hoazin (Galliformes). Zoologičeskij žurnal, 67 (12): 1854-1864.

Good luck !


PS: A funny quote from Sibley and Ahlquist (1973): Stresemen (1965) would have say that "If Opisthocomus is related to the gallinaceous birds it is only by way of Adam and Eve". Quite a statement ! XD

I am looking for a description of the osteology of the Hoatzin more recent than Heilmann and references therein. My searches haven't turn anything up. Given how it keeps popping up in discussions about Archaeopteryx and bird origins I foolishly thought I would have no trouble finding such a publication.
