Chinese "Primitive archaeopterryx"



Japanese JIJI PRESS has just released next interesting news.
Next is my translation.

>    The fossil of Chinese "Primitive archaeopterryx" was found in China on
>Dec.1996. It's as same as which inhabited 145 million years ago in Germany.
>    Chinese researchers named and published the papers on it.
>
>    Compared with that of Germany it became clear that;
>        Basic structure of the bone was same.
>        Length of foot reaches 40 cm, and is bigger.
>        Fundamental characteristic such as sharp dens, long tail,
>                                   structure of wing bone is concordant.
>    Dens is more firm and a foot is big, so it's a little primitive. 
>    However level of evolution is almost same.


   It isn't clear whether English translation of "Primitive
archaeopterryx"
is correct.  And it differs from _Confuciusornis_, _Liaoningornis_ and
_Sinosauropteryx_.
