I wrote the original comment.
The lumping you mentioned above is one of the ones I had in mind
when I called him an extreme lumper. (That, along with rejecting
Nannotyrannus). While one *can make a case for combining them,
I find the divergence a little too much for one genus, really.
The peace of God be with you.
