Re: Piksi a pterosaur, not a bird from Upper Cretaceous
Rescued from truncation:
Ornithodesmus could count as a bird first thought to be a pterosaur=2C if y=
ou have a broad definition of 'bird'. "Archaeopteryx" "vicensensis" is ano=
ther pterosaur first thought to be a bird. An example almost as terrible a=
s Pristavolucris (probably a junior synonym of Lonchidion) is the Kota bird=
that ended up being Indocoelacanthus.
