Reptilia - Avetheropoda - Xenerodiopidae
If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.
|D. T. Rasmussen et al. 1987||As for the family. The humerus indicates a
species somewhat smaller than the smallest modern stork,
Ciconia abdimii, and probably larger than Ardea alba and
most modern herons except the larger species of Ardea. The
proportions of the rostrum are so different from those of
possible relatives that size comparisons are very difficult, but
the width at die base would seem to indicate a species of about
the same size as suggested by die humerus.
