Response to the Technical Comment on 'A Jurassic ornithischian dinosaur from Siberia with both feathers and scales'

Science, 346:434-435.

Lingham-Soliar questions our interpretation of integumentary structures in the Middle-Late Jurassic ornithischian dinosaur Kulindadromeus as feather-like appendages and alternatively proposes that the compound structures observed around the humerus and femur of Kulindadromeus are support fibres associated with badly degraded scales. We consider this hypothesis highly unlikely due to the taphonomy and morphology of the preserved structures.
