It may be a dromaeosaurid, or possibly some other kind of paravian (like
maybe a basal bird). I'd heard a theory that it might be the adult form of
the flightless avialan _Unenlagia_, but that's only a possibility.
(There's no overlapping material between the two, and they come from the
same site). Apart from that, I don't think anything new's been published
on this rather scrappy (if impressive) fossil.
