3 questions about Longisquama

One question about nomenclature, and the other two questions are about morphology.
(1) Is Family Longisquamidae the correct spelling, or would the correct spelling be Longisquamatidae?
(2) Thomas Holtz said that "most" archosauromorphs have at least 8 cervical vertebrae. Anybody know any of the exceptions that don't have at least 8 cervical vertebrae?
(3) Is it possible that Sharov was mistaken in stating that Longisquama is acrodont. Could it possibly be subthecodont or something in between acrodont and subthecodont?
Thanks, Ken
