RE: Larry Marten and Russians Discover Longisquama "Feathers"
Isolated parafeathers of Longisquama have been known since Sharov first
described the taxon. Jones et al. (2000) (with Martin and Kurochkin as
coauthors) even mentions them-
(PIN 2584/5) partial parafeather
(PIN 2584/6) two partial parafeathers
(PIN 2584/7) partial parafeather
(PIN 2584/9) six partial parafeathers
It's good they're looking for more material though. Of course, actually
describing the holotype well would be a good thing too. Their model is
quite funny, with pararetrices.

More evidence against BADD? Marten says so, but whatever. Anything on
Longisquama is interesting, as far as I'm concerned.
Apparently from the site of the origonal A.G. Sharnov expedition of 1969.
Apparently some scattered "feathers" without a body.
P.S. As usual, found first via The Anomalist.
