25 or so, just there is no published information on whether they actually
are *Oviraptor*, *Ingenia* or whatever. (I'll wait for the paper... :-) )

True? So many?
.... 100s of Protoceratops etc. (Would this be based on complete
skeletons? Or just interesting finds?)
_Bonebeds_ of *Coelophysis*, *Maiasaura*, *Centrosaurus* IIRC...

Does this make it more probable that the carpometacarpi of alvarezsaurids
(unknown in *Alvarezsaurus*, AFAIK) and *Avimimus* are convergent to those
What's the situation in confuciusornithids?
I just read the Chatterjee _Palaeontographica_ paper on *Protoavis*.
Revelations forthcoming... ;-)
