File:Microraptor gui holotype under UV light.png

English: The holotype of Microraptor gui, IVPP V 13352 under UV light. Different filters were employed for parts A and B, hence the difference in colour and appearance. A also is labeled to indicate the preserved feathers (grey arrows) and the 'halo' around the specimen where they appear to be absent (black arrows) as well as phosphatised tissues (white arrows). Scale bars are 5 cm in both A and B.
Polski: Holotyp Microraptor gui, IVPP V 13352, widziany w świetle ultrafioletowy. Różne filtry zastosowano dla części A i B, stąd różnice w kolorze i wyglądzie. Na zdjęciu A szarymi strzałkami zaznaczono zachowane pióra, czarnymi – "halo" wokół okazu, gdzie pióra wydają się nieobecne, a szarymi – sfosfatyzowane tkanki. Pasek skali wynosi 5 cm na obu zdjęciach.
