What does it mean about the phylogenic position of _Caudipteryx_?
IIRC it's been thought to be a basal oviraptorosaur. But I don't recall any oviraptorosaur with 2 phalanges on the 3rd digit.

At best, it probably is a good indicator that Caudipteryx isn't the best model for the ur-oviraptorosaur.

interested in paleontology.

Agreed.
