hardly surprising ... though note that the new genus and species names probably
are available names (assuming Calodema is printed correctly as hard copy -
though we may never know for sure ...)
oh well, it is a good opportunity for someone to publish the synonymy ...

"unfortunately for these guys, Hawkeswoodidae was proposed with Amrishoonops as
type genus! As it is not formed from the stem of an available generic name, it
is not available"
Well, I just got a note from Norm Platnick that this thing isn't a new family,
not even a new genus.
