Kulindadromeus update

The on-going research on Kulindadromeus and Trans-Baikal dinosaurs in Siberia, now threatened by unauthorized ("black") digs; Kulindadromeus now thought to have three types of scales and three types of feather-like structures, but study continues about its true appearance (it's been revised a few times as research continues);  little dinosaur given local nickname Lindika; without funding to continue the scientific digs, unauthorized digs are likely happen,  with material being smuggled into nearby China and lost to science according to Sofia Sinitsa  (in Russian)
