London Archie Declared Type Specimen

The London specimen of Archaeopteryx lithographica (I love that species suffix) has been formally declared the type specimen by the ICZN.  Hooray.

I have not yet had a chance to draw an Archaeopteryx.  Boo.


  1. I personally love that a species was represented by a single feather. Oh well..

  2. Dani Boy: Haha, isn't that marvelous?

    Also, I've just noticed a typo in my post which had escaped me earlier but which I've now corrected. Wah, I hate it when that happens.
