The 12th Archaeopteryx

All about SPOKA (Specimens Once Known as Archaeopteryx)

In a wonderful article in the Guardian a new find of Archaeopteryx is discussed. There are now nine specimens known and they are all slightly different from each other. The 9 used to be 12 but 3 have been reassigned.

If the Guardian article is too skimpy for you, the original paper can be found HERE.
