That's not *quite* correct, but I tend to agree that this is too
many teeth for it to be a proper ornithomimid.

In that case, it would be in the Coelurosauria (restricted sense)
or in the basal Maniraptora.  (The taxonomy of the small Late
Jurassic and Early Creatceous generalist therapods is still
highly unsettled).
