Compsognathus



   A question for the list:

   _The Dinosauria_ reports that the _Compsognathus_ specimens had two full
digits, and a third partial digit.  Is it possible that the complete third
digit was lost, possibly because it had Maniraptoran proportions (ie long
and slender), and that _Compsognathus_ was actually a tridactyl
Maniraptoran?  I do seem to recall Dinogeorge mentioning many affinities
between _T. rex_, a Maniraptoriforme_ and _Compsognathus_.....
