I'm getting a sinus headache.
I could also mention _Archaeopteryx_ / _Archaeornis_ / _Archaeornithomimus_
/ _Archaeornithoides_ / Archaeoraptor / _Protarchaeopteryx_ / _Protopteryx_
/ _Protoavis_ ... but I think that might put you into migraine territory.
Now that the *frelling paper* (sensu Tom Holtz and Rygel XVI) is finally

Damn - I had money on _Sinarchaeornitholestes_!
