Sapeornis chaoyangensis (Zhou and Zhang 2002. 2003; Early Cretaceous; IVPP V13276) is a basal ornithurine bird, the clade that gave rise to modern birds. The short tail was tiped with a pygostyle. The coracoids were wide and relatively short. Manual digit 3 is a vestige. The claws on the remaining digits are all raptorial.
DNHM-F3078 (Gao et al. 2012 (Figs 1, 2) was smaller, considered a juvenile based on bone texture. It lived 3-5 million years earlier and had a pubic boot. It nests with the IVPP specimen in the LRT.
As a reminder…
None of these sapeornithid birds had an ossified sternum.
