This must be the therizinosauroid found by Sereno et al. during their
April-May 2001 expedition to Inner-Mongolia.

The website with the field updates is still available; the link below
contains additional info and even a couple of images of the excavation of
Erliansaurus (this critter eventually became the mascot of the expedition!).

Barely 14 months between excavation and publication ... not bad.
