Re: giant toothed bird-species or genus that lasts 50 million yrs?

Check heterodontosaurids, for instance. They form a very small clade of
which representatives are known from the Late Triassic to the Berriasian
(> 60 Ma). And I remind you that pelagornithids includes currently about
a dozen genera, and that many fragmentary specimens have been reported
all around the world.
This seems to be an awfully long time for a single (or closely related)group of
a species to last (to me)?
Is there anything in the non-avian dino record that is equivalent?
