Re: Segnosauria v Therizanosauroidea

The choice boils down to the issue of selecting a *ranking* for
the groups.  Any family goup taxon that contains Therizinosaurus
must have a name based on that genus.  For a taxon ranked above
the family grou level, any name can be used, so the more familiar
Segnosauria is preferable.

Choosing a rank is always the most subjective part of taxonomy.
So the answer to your question cannot be established definitively.
