New oviraptorid preserves reproductive organ

I had a few spare minutes to do some translating of the 
Chinese text for the oviraptor specimen new item shown at:

http://www.dinosaurclass.com/dino0905.htm

The title translates roughly as "Male dinosaur with fossil 
reproductive organ discovered in Heyuan." The text 
mentions that the specimen has soft tissue preserved. The 
outline of the putative organ can been seen in the view of 
the specimen on the right (indicated in black).  Sorry I 
don't have time to do a full translation at the moment but 
the find sounds rather amazing if
true!
