Because pterosaurs are not feathered, while caudipteryx's very name means, tail-feather. Microraptor, unlike any known animal in the world, had four feathered wings. Additionally, there are more skeletal similarities between microraptor and caudipteryx, with them both being theropods while pterosaurs were an entirely different group of animals.

Why were so few dinosaurs found in Antarctica?

The reason that so few dinosaurs have been found in Antarctica is because it is almost impossible to dig for fossils on most of Antarctica. First, most if it is underneath a mile of ice. Secondly, because Antarctica is so harsh, few paleontologists go to dig even in the areas of rock that are exposed. To me, for those reasons, it's surprising that any dinosaurs have been found in Antarctica.
