Taxonomy?[edit]

Hi, where does the second part of the taxonomy come from, that is, how come, that John Wible and Zhe-Xi Luo named it after the distinctly Hungarian surname Szalay?

Source for cladogram?[edit]

Is the cladogram under "Etiology of marsupials" (an odd title) a composite or is it based on a valid source? Since it mentions Acristatherium one might think it is based on Hu, et al. (2010) that described the genus, but if so it's an extreme oversimplification and/or original synthesis (Sinodelphys is not included in the Hu et al cladogram), and its source needs identification. --Animalparty-- (talk) 18:43, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
