These may well be the same taxon: however, neither Saurornitholestes nor
"Bambi" have been well described in the published literature. >>
I would think the idea in this case would be to redescribe Saurornitholestes
better (if possible) rather than to erect a new genus. There seem to be too
many new genera being described because previous material was described
according to different standards and is discarded (e.g., why Jobaria
tiguidensis but not Rebbachisaurus tamesnensis; Suchomimus but not
Cristatusaurus; Majungatholus but not Majungasaurus; and so forth?).
