Protarchaeopteryx



The main reason that Protarchaeopteryx is called a bird, is because in the
only available publication, Ji & Ji (1997) refer to it as a bird. The
specimen in the Bejing museum is casually refered to as a bird. This is due
in large part to the presence of feather impressions.
  In the discription (in Chinese) they assign it to the Archaeopterygiformes
Furbringer, 1888.
  There are, at present, no discriptions in the English literture.
