does anybody know if "Archaeoraptor"'s skull (with the rest of the chimaeric body) depicted on November 1999 NG issue is the same skull described as Microraptor's one by Xing Xu et al.?

No. The skull belongs to the undescribed bird part of the chimera. Only the tail portion of the "Archaeoraptor" chimera (shown in Natl Geographic) belongs to Microraptor.


The DML archives has the entire saga described in depth.
