Re: Bird extinctions at K-Pg boundary
[...] 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.
