Great list but for what reason is Sapayoa aenigma on there?

Isn't the type of Ardetta the same as for Ixobrychus? (I. minuta/us)

Nannocnus, Stejneger, 1887 (type = eurhythmus) seems to be available for the most divergent group (eurhythmus + cinnamomeus).

I'd like to see a similar approach applied consistently across whole of Aves (e.g.):
