Sorry I'm a bit late to this party. You've probably already read Darren Naish's and Jaime Headden's excellent takes on Yi qi, but I'm going to try something a little different. It's a FAQ. Let me know if you like this format or not for covering news.
So I heard there’s a new dinosaur in town!
That's no sauropodomorph...
Indeed there is! It’s a basal tetanurine from Chile named…Chilesaurus. It’s weird because it’s a theropod that has reverse-engineered some sauropodomorph and ornithischian features.
Wait, what? Did it have bat wings?
Oh, you’re talking about Yi qi, from China, also announced in two weeks ago.
