The abstracts for vol 1 of the new Dinosaur Museum
Journal _Feathered Dinosaurs and the Origin of Flight_
include the new name _Omnivoropteryx sinousaorum_.
This is apparently an omnivorous volant bird with a
_Caudipteryx_-like skull (hm) from the Upper Jiufutang
Fm. Skull morphology provides the basis for their idea that
it was omnivorous.
Also listed are articles on a new crested non-pterodactyloid
pterosaur (S. A. Czerkas and Ji), a description of what
would appear to be the avian component of 'Archaeoraptor'
(S. A. Czerkas and Xu) and a description of the specimen
that may or may not be _Epidendrosaurus_ (S. A. Czerkas
and Yuan). I have seen photos of Czerkas' specimen and
don't recall it looking like the _Epidendrosaurus
