Re: ORNITHOMIMID THERIZINOSAURS

Yes, I'd forgotten the definition of Oviraptorosauria, so was
confused. However, I wrote in the sense of a trichotomy: they were
either closer to oviraptorosaurs, or ornithimimosaurs and/or
bullatosaurs, not falling equally between the two groups.
Sorry for the confusion.
