_Longisquama_ isn't mentioned in the
description, but an analysis of _Longisquama_ a
few years back (Senter, 2004) recovered
_Longisquama_ in a group he called the
Avicephala, which also includes drepanosaurids
and coelurosauravids. This group lies somewhere
near the base of the Diapsida, outside both the
archosauromorphs and lepidosauromorphs.
However Senter's character list was based on
incomplete data on drepanosaurids, its
integration and reanalysis nested drepanosaurids
within the "neodiapsids" possibily close to
prolacertiforms (Renesto & Binelli 2006).
The pdf of the paper is available here:
