A few questions:
Wouldn't this be _Protoavis_(P)? Assuming it is a valid taxon, then where=
would Archy fit, considering that it appears more "primitive" than P? Is P=
an early experiment that failed (weren't pterosarus radiating at this=
time), or is Archy the dino attempt at flight? Finally, if P is=
legitimate, then aren't there concerns about it being a true dinosaur, and=
actually being a seperate descendant from the thecodonts?
Ah, the ignorance of youth.
