However, *Scansoriopteryx* lacks this twisted first metatarsal that was
implicated for the retroverted hallux. This is virtually untestable in
True, I forgot about that. All evidence there is is that in both all toes
are on the same level -- the metatarso-phalangeal joints form a straight
line --, but of course that's not enough to show any toe was retroverted.
it makes the issue
relatively a refutal of there being a reversed hallux in the taxon.
