I think I trust Angela Milner more than Stephen Pickering (she has
given recent talks on the material - see my SVPCA writeup). The
denticle size difference index of _Nuthetes_ is within the
dromaeosaurid range but unlike that of any lizard (the only other
serious contendor for identity). Work in progress I understand.
