Give Senter 2005 another careful read. He got very few things right with regard 
to Coelurosauravus and Longisquama. The parietal "bumps" he employs as a 
synapomorphy linking the two are not the parietal in either taxon, for instance.

And BTW what a "crown group diapsid" is needs to be called into question.
