Taxonomy and zoological nomenclature
My current taxonomy is based on Garcia & al which show the existence of three subfamilies. I don't know who to believe and who to follow finally 🧐😕Thanks for the Kirchman paper.
So there is pretty good agreement on the subfamily/tribe topology (just need to debock the names). The two differences are the addition of Gynnocrex as an additional tribe (Gymnocrecini) and the position of Fulicini. Kirchman's ML analysis (Fig 1) has Gymnocrecini as sister to Himantornithini with Fulicini sister to the remainder of the subfamily, while Kirchman's species tree (Fig 2) matches the Garcia-R et al (2020; Fig1) topology. The disagreement on position of Fulicini is a good reason for the two subfamily approach over three.
