_Gasosaurus_ is no coelurosaurian.  If the illustration of the pelvis in
_The Dinosauria_ can be trusted, it appears to be a basal carnosaur of
some kind.

Greg Paul suggested that _Proceratosaurus_ was related to _Ornitholestes_
(and hence, in today's parlance, a basal coelurosaur).  I know too little
about this animal to be able to comment intelligently.
