See:
Le Loeuff, J., E. Buffetaut, P. Mechin & A. Mechin-Salessy.  1992.  The
first record of dromaeosaurid dinosaurs (Saurischia, Theropoda) in the
Maastrichtian of southern Europe: palaeobiogeographical implications. Bull.
Soc. Geol. France 163: 337-343.

owls from the Upper Cretaceous of Romania.  Palaeontology 18: 563-570.

Le Loeuff et al. consider Elopteryx a dromaeosaurid.
