Fukuiraptor (Re: Details on Microraptor)

As y'all might have surmised, the last of these is _Fukuiraptor
kitadaniensis_, Azuma and Currie's EK Japanese allosauroid, once thought to
be a dromaeosaur because of its unguals and fused interdental plates.
The paper includes a restoration that looks a _lot_ like _Sinraptor_, but
that may be due to the restoration being mostly based on _Sinraptor_, as
_Fukuiraptor_ is kinda scrappy (pieces are known from a large portion of the
skeleton, but the preservation is not terrific).
Anyhoo, I'll let Mickey fill in the details, since he seems so keen on it!
