I take it there's no premaxilla preserved? Could be interesting to know if 
there are teeth in it.

Is it back in Palaeognathae, too? (Mlíkovský 
http://web.redbox.cz/mlikovsky/Cenozoic-birds-of-Europe.pdf even puts it into 
Tinamidae. His classification of birds is rather... unheard of, though, and 
most of the evidence for it is "in prep.". Warning: the file is a book with 
407 pages.)

Sorry that I don't have a question about the tyrannosaur work :-)
