Just archosaurs? Relative forelimb elongation (where the forelimb comes close to 1:1 relative to the hindlimb) in Archosauromorpha occurs in a grand total of four groups: Drepanosauridae, Pterosauria, Neosauropoda, & Maniraptora


A very interesting post, Jaime. I would ask, where does _Megalancosaurus_ fit into this? It also has long forelimbs. Is it a depanosaurid?

Do advanced/derived therixinosaurs also show a 1:1 ratio of forelimb to hindlimb?

Thanks
