Yup.  _Alvarezsaurus_ itself, for one.  _Patagonykus_, for another.


<<Were there any ornithomimes there?>>

Nope.  And _Alvarezsaurus_ looks very different from _Mononykus_ and _Shuvuuia_ 
(though _A._ is maddeningly incomplete).  The foot of _A._ looks *much* more 
like that of a dromaeosaur or early bird than it looks like the foot of an 
ornithomimid.
