As long as _Longisquama_ has been brought up, what does the group think
those long "quills" were for? Does anyone go along with some restorations
I've seen that show _Longisquama_ using them as wings, so that it could
glide like its "colleague" Podopteryx?!
( By the way, I admit to being a bit of a die-hard fanatic when it comes to
nomenclature -- I continue to use a "traditional" name for a being if it
is an apt one--like "Podopteryx" (its legs had wings!), "Brontosaurus"
(footsteps of thunder!), "Dinichthys" (terrifying fish!), or even
"Deinodon" (terrifying teeth!)--even if the name is not official...Call
me weird, but that's me :) )
