The message was not addressed to me, but sent to me nonetheless. Thus, I
assumed that it was sent erroneously to the entire list. It might have
helped if you had also addressed the message to me, not just to Paula, if I
was an intended recipient.
And once again, how do you get hypertrophied digits from atrophied digits?
Answer: Why not. Digits have re-gained function in a locomotory or
prehensile capacity in several dinosaur lineages: sauropods,
therizinosauroids, birds. I don't see why this is a big deal. BTW, for
your assertion to be correct you would also have to demonstrate that the
ancestor possessed "atrophied" digits, as opposed to the sister taxon.
