Shao et al. 2017 strangely refer to _Liaoningornis_ as "the only member of the Neornithes in the Yixian Formation." Has anyone else ever considered it to be that derived?
From Hao et al. 2017, "In 2002–2005, the Yellow River _Megalosaurus_ was discovered in the Liujiaxia area of Yongjing County in Gansu Province, which is known as the fattest dinosaur in China." ...Is this a poorly translated reference to _Huanghetitan_?

A Mesozoic Pompeii: History of the Jehol Biota’s Rise and Fall.
Acta Geologica Sinica 91(5): 1893-1903
The Jehol fauna was initially represented by a bony fish, concostracan and an insect, as a Lycoptera davidi-Eosestheria- Ephemoropsis triseatalis assocation, but since the researches of recent decades, the Jehol Biota is now completely different from the past low-diversity, and encompasses a native terrestrial biota that includes many well-preserved vertebrates, invertebrates and plants. There are more than 20 important biological categories, thousands of taphonomically unusual fossils, especially noted for the wide variety of biological tissues. The Jehol Biota has caused a sensation in the world with its wide distribution, large quantity, great variety, fine preservation and detailed information, which records the rise and fall of the numerous taxa, and provides significant evidence for three origins: of birds, eutherian mammals, and angiosperms. The Jehol Biota is a highlight of basic scientific research in China, and we honor it as a world-class fossil treasury and a "Mesozoic Pompeii".
