Re: Question about Archaeopteryx's (non) reversed hallux
I still have one more question though. Is a retroverted hallux a trait
that's shared in all theropoda or only dromaeosaurs?
No theropods except Scansoriopterygidae and Ornithothoraces have reversed
halluces, in spite of earlier mistaken reconstructions. *Confuciusornis* has
medially directed ones -- the intermediate condition.
