Re: Nemicolopterus phylogeny

Wait a sec, WAIT A SEC. Here's what the abstract says:
"[_Nemicolopterus crypticus_] indicates that derived pterosaurs,
including some gigantic forms of the Late Cretaceous with wingspans of
>6 m, are closely related to small arboreal toothless creatures...."

It says "closely related to", not "descended from".
