Small theropods

I just got the following article today...

Zinke, J., 1998. Small theropod teeth from the Upper Jurassic coal mine
of Guimarota (Portugal). Palaontologische Zeitschrift, 72, 1/2: 179-189.

They have Archaeopteyrx, Compsognathus sp, Dromaeosaurine,
Velociraptorine, Troodontid, Tyrannosaurid, Ricardoestesia (Correct
spelling), Paronychodon sp, allosaurid?, small and large theropod teeth.

Here's the small theropods running around the late Jurassic.

Also Halticosaurid and Dromaeosaurid (?) teeth from the Falla Formation,
Antarctica (found with Cryolophosaurus).

There out there...

Some questions of anyone who has access to Confuciusornis specimens. 

Are ossified sternal ribs present? 

Can the absence of an opening in the pectoral crest of the humerus cited by
Martin et al 98 be confirmed? 

Can the lack of a strong jugal component of the postorbital bar cited by
Martin et al 98 be confirmed (a low set suture is not apparent in the skull
photographed in Feduccia 96 and this summer's National Geographic).
