RE: Type species of Leptorhynchos

I suggested to Nick that the most useful type species could be *gaddisi,* as 
this leaves the tricky issue of where *elegans* falls and the inference that 
the DPFm mandibles referred to it could be wrong out of the nomenclature issue, 
but it was his intention to use *elegans* instead. My bet (not having read the 
note) is that he went with the implied original intention.
