Though the figure would give the impression of teeth in the Epidendrosaurus
holotype being merely "bony bumps", one must remember the figure is very
small and undetailed.
Indeed, I was original mislead into thinking that this creature might be a
close relative of the oviraptorosaurs by the presence of an edentulous
dentary and one with a crenulatted rostral margin no less! However, this
was proven wrong by further reading much to my dismay. I recently completed
a skeletal drawing of *E.* and I do agree, it is rather *Archaeopteryx*
Because Jaime said 17 were preserved, and about 21 would be expected
