Exactly. But judging from the data matrix there's not very much preserved of
it, e. g. all 51 skull characters are coded "?". The data matrix has only
Dromaeosauridae as an outgroup, doesn't include *Protopteryx*, *Longipteryx*
and *Jibeinia*, but instead 5 Neornithes. At least *Apsaravis* is present.
        Unfortunately it takes months for articles that are already
published online to appear in the print version.
