Re: Neuquenraptor argentinus
Published at last!!! :-)
Yes, Neuquenraptor argentinus (the taxon formerly called "Araucanoraptor"
on the list) is now published. It is an apparently fully
arctometatarsalian dromaeosaurid, although the proximal end of the
metatarsus isn't known.
I don't know... to me it looks like it could just as well have the classic
subarctometatarsalian condition. It was scored as "?" in the analysis.
Strangely enough, they don't code *Caudipteryx* as subarctometatarsalian.
I wonder why the text calls *Hulsanpes* a "derived dromaeosaurid".
TNT was used.
The trees in the supp. inf. have a "toothed_ornithomimid"... and the main
text seems to imply Xu Xing has something sickle-clawed in the pipeline that
is not a dromaeosaur...
