_Pelecanimimus_ and suggests that ornithomimids and spinosaurids may share a
fairly close common ancestor. Food for thought

That might throw some light on the nature and origin of Baryonyx's claws.
It would also mean _B_ would have had to have been really motoring to have
got to where it was in the time it had, if _Pelecanimimus_ were descended
from Archae.

Do you have any thoughts on what is and what isn't ex-Archae?

> Wouldn't it be interesting if
_Deinocheirus_, a problematic theropod that some think is closely related to
ornithomimids, turns out to be a spinosauroid of some kind?

So _Deinocheirus_ isn't a segnosaur then?  Since the weekend
ornithomimosaurs and segnos might well be mutually exclusive again.
