No, the bone preserved with Megaraptor is certainly a distal third
metatarsal, NOT a metacarpal.  Also, the ungual is near-certainly pedal and
there is nothing to suggest Megaraptor is synonymous with Unenlagia.
Unenlagia is eumaniraptoran, Megaraptor is probably paravian.  They are both
from the same formation, but the latter is much larger.
