Re: Bird extinctions at K-Pg boundary



Awesome!!!

 [...] Apsaraviformes was proposed by Livezey and Zusi (2007), so
 should have priority over Palintropiformes. Ambiortus shares an
 absent capital groove with Apsaravis, and if related would mean the
 order should be called Ambiortiformes (Kurochkin, 1982) instead.

As Jaime points out, priority does not exist in the ICZN above the family group of ranks.
