This issue of _Oryctos_ is stacked with BANDit/MANIAC boilerplate. Larry
Martin's abstract says it all...
(a) there is no evidence that _Microraptor_ actually adopted Beebe's
'tetrapteryx' pose, since this required the femora to be laterally
In 2006, at the 2nd International Palaeontological Congress, Larry Martin
told me that he had some ongoing work on 50 specimens (!) that showed
*Microraptor* was _too_ capable of sprawling. This was, IIRC, supposed to be
published soon; in any case I didn't get another answer when I asked how
sprawling was compatible with the photos in Hwang et al. (2002).
I'm not holding my breath anymore...
