Cladogram based on a subset of taxa from Xu et al 2009 study:
Both Alvarezsaurids and Oviraptors within Euparaves.
For details see here.

Cladogram based on all data except Epidexipteryx from Xu et al 2009 study.

From Agnolín and Novas  (2013):
Agnolín and Novas (2013) recovered scansoriopterygids as non-paravian maniraptorans and the sister group to Oviraptorosauria.[11] (Brusatte et al 2014)
Oviraptors within Euparaves. (Also see Figure S2 for more details.)
Notice that Pedopenna is included with Epidexipteryx within Euparaves.,d.dmo (O'Connor and Sullivan 2014)
