Re: Sinosauropteryx and Compsognathus manus
The following is a retraction that I sent days ago, but which -- due to
technical difficulties -- didn't appear on the list at that time...

Wrong again, Ralph. Although the article closely compares the two
and points out similarities in the manus for the two genera, the authors
don't explicitly state that _Compsognathus_ had a tridactyl manus. One
might assume that this would be their point of view, but you shouldn't go
around putting words into other people's mouths
