The Archaeopterygiformes were an order of early birds that lived during the Jurassic and possibly Cretaceous periods. They include one of the most well known and earliest birds known, Archaeopteryx. Archaeopterygiformes are distinguished from other early birds by long bony tails, and in some species, by the presence of a hyperextendible second toe.
