Re: How to use hindwings/Lambrecht

I have borrowed a copy of Lambrecht's "Handbuch". If
you have access to it, note fig.202b (p.899), which
shows a nice Archie drawing... with leg feathers.
Beebe seems to have known them in 1915.

In addition, there is this teaser:
"A fifth Jurassic bird on which Vidal reports [Mem.
Real Acad. Ci. y Artes, Barcelona 4, 1902, No. 18] is
untraceable." (Lambrecht, op. cit.: 652)

As 3 of his "Jurassic birds" are Archies, and the
fourth is "Laopteryx", I suspect #5 is not avian. But
who knows?
