Unless you accept-
1. Scansoriopteryx is Callovian like Epidendrosaurus, because they're
similar enough to be conspecific, though locality data is unknown for the
former and integument is unpreserved for the latter.
2. Praeornis sharovi, the Late Jurassic supposed feather.
3. Longisquama's parafeathers as being feathers.
