RE: 9th anniversary of the first feathered dinosaur discovery

As today it's the 9th anniversary of announcing the find of

some 10 non-avian dinosaur genera. Could anyone tally all of them?
Excluding archaeopterygids and anything closer to Aves...
Caudipteryx dongi (= C. zoui)
Cryptovolans pauli (= Microraptor zhaoianus?)
Microraptor gui (= M. zhaoianus?)
Also, is anything new about the only non-theropod dinosaur with such
structures, the >infamous "furry" Psittacosaurus specimen? Thanks, Vlad
Even if Psittacosaurus' quills are homologous with feathers, they're clearly
not the same type of structures seen in coelurosaurs. But no, nothing else
has been published.
