That is an odd looking little thing. I'm quite fascinated by those fingers.

is it related to Archaeopteryx?
NTamura's avatar
Ah, difficult question... According to the latest analysis by Lee an co-workers, both Archaeopteryx and Epidexipteryx are Avialians, so in that sense they are related...

Very strange (and kind of cute in that picture).

I wonder what those long fingers could have been for...
