>_Chilantaisaurus_ - Gerry Harris, in his description of 
_Acrocanthosaurus_ (1998), gives convincing evidence for including 
this genus among the Allosauroidea, close to _Acrocanthosaurus_.  <

        Based on the published description of _Chilantaisaurus_, yes...but
note that I also mention that Dan Chure, who has actually examined the
braincase material in China, notes that the published description is
misleading and/or flat-out wrong on a lot of points, particularly in
misinterpretation of diagenetically altered features, making the thing look
more allosauroid than it is...
