This sounds interesting.  Does anyone know what formation this is from?  Is
this a new species?  (It would be nice if an ornithomimid came out of
Liaoning... with skin impressions, of course.)

Since ornithomimids probably didn't spend too much time in the water,
gastroliths seem to show that they were capable of digesting vegetation in
addition to insects and small vertebrates.
