According to the English abstract, the authors suggest that
_Asiahesperornis_ might be a junior synonym of _Parahesperornis_. In
the body of the paper the authors additionally appear to suggest that
(1) _Hesperornis crassipes_ and _H. chowi_ might also be referable to
_Parahesperornis_, and (2) _H. chowi_ is possibly a junior synonym of
_H. crassipes_. (This is according to a rough and ready online
translator, anyway.) This would result in the new combinations
_Parahesperornis bazhanovi_ and _P. _crassipes_, although neither are
(or AFAIK have been elsewhere) formally proposed.
