Re: Dinosauricon Phylogeny: in progress

Just a quick question: _Hulsanpes_ was originally described by Osmolska
(1982) as a dromaeosaurid. The above phylogeny (and some before it on the
DML) place _Hulsanpes_ within the birds; this has been circulating for at
least 5 years. But has anyone ever published the interpretation that
_Hulsanpes_ is probably a bird?
