But in tomorrow's Nature...



... there is a big article about the Yixian and Jiufotang Fms. With many
pics, 
including a low-resolution photo of the tail of the undescribed specimen
IVPP V 
13275, which is referred to *Sapeornis chaoyangensis*, plenty of name
misspellings, 
and a very good profile that shows which absolute ages were taken from where
in which 
formations and what fossils have been found there. Interesting that they
give two 
occurrences of *Sinovenator*. Also interesting that they take it for granted
that 
every single pygostylian has a beak. *Archaefructus* may be an interesting
basal 
angiosperm or maybe not an angiosperm at all, and in any case it isn't the
oldest 
angiosperm.
