The Codret Quarry (Coderet-Bransat), from which the holotype of Genucrassum bransatensis was collected, is the reference locality for the Paleogene mammalian zone MP30. Zone MP30 is considered to bracket the Miocene-Oligocene boundary with an age estimated between 24.1-23.6 Ma (Hugueney et al., 2003). The age of the boundary between the Oligocene and Miocene has been revised to 23.03 Ma (International Commission on Stratigraphy, 2012.) and is recommended herein as a constraint on the divergence between Burhinidae and other Charadrii.

NHB Cod. 1258
NMB Cod. 1258 was referred to Burhinidae by De Pietri and Scofield (2013) based on apomorphies of the carpometacarpus. The following apomorphies that support referral of NMB Cod. 1258 were cited by De Pietri and Scofield (2013): (1) strongly developed and ventrally projecting processus extensorius; (2) caudally well-developed ventral portion of trochlea carpalis, displaying a sharp angle distally. No alternative hypothesis has been proposed linking this specimen to any clade other than Burhinidae.
