Description:

A new Miocene penguin from Patagonia and its phylogenetic relationships with Spheniscidae. To determine this relationship, a phylogenetic test was ran using 44 osteological characters sampled from 14 representative species of all living genera and five fossil species of Spheniscidae. The family is clearly monophyletic and... More

This is a very interesting article that includes a lot of information. The current research being done on this pecies of penguin shows to be extensive.

This is a very interesting topic that allows for a better studying of systematic biology.  It is very difficult to determine wehter a new aspecis has risen or if crossbreeding of two different species of anmialia may have occured.  Genetically and through homologus structures across a taxa does not support enough of the evidence need to make a correct statment.
