This is the type species, as I recall, no?  If the pedal material is 
anything like the way it is illustrated in _The Dinosauria_, then there 
is no way this is _Alectrosaurus_, or any other tyrannosaurid.

Looks much more like an allosaur or an outsized ornitholestian.

Are they talking about _"C." maortuensis_ here?
