Unfortunately, not yet. There is VERY little material to go by. It is
almost certainly a coelurosaur, but it seems to be more primitive than
troodontids or dromaeosaurids. If new specimens are found, they would
really help to answer the question. Until them, like a lot of dinosaurs
known only from very fragmentary fossils, its identity will be uncertain.
