Hi,

Epidentrosaurus ningchengensis Zhang, Zhou, Xu & Wang, 2002

   Zhang, F., Zhou, Z., Xu, X. & Wang, X.-l., 2002: A juveline
coelurosaurian theropod from China indicates arboreal habits.
Naturwissenschaften: Vol. 89, #8, pp. 394-398

Chinese authors of Epidentrosaurus consider Scansoriopteryx an invalid
senior synonym of Epidentrosaurus due unethical conduct.

Hello,

Could someone please send me the descriptions of Yixianosaurus and
Epidendrosaurus, or at least, the citations?  Also, what is the current
state of affairs regarding the age of the latter and possible synonymy with
Scansoriopteryx?
Thank you very much,

Andrew McDonald
