<< According to Glut's encyclopedia, "Kitadanisaurus" is a Japanese

 material (right astragalus, left metatarsal III, and right ?first manual
 ungual).  It's apparently about twice the size of *Deinonychus*, but is
 not an official name yet.  The material was briefly described by Azuma
 and Currie, 1995.-*Thescelosaurus* >>

Looks as if this name is becoming a catch-all for Early Cretaceous
dromaeosaurid material from the Kitadani Formation in Japan, eh?
