Why Subsectio and not Subdivisio? Kiwi Rex (talk) 05:04, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

@Kiwi Rex: Good question. It probably shouldn't be "sectio", but I'm not familiar with the taxonomy/nomenclature of Sauria and hence not sure which is the correct rank. (As a side-note Wikidata currently doesn't state any value at all for the taxon rank: Q133190.)

The ranks seem to be based on Michael Benton's taxonomy in the 2005 edition of Vertebrate Palaeontology. If that's the case, Ornithodira is an infradivision in subdivision Avemetatarsalia.Kiwi Rex (talk) 23:59, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
