"As far as I can tell they're describing a small coelurosaur from the

reducidos, El tamano del especimen es comparable con el conocido para los

The specimen is a juvenile individual that exhibits apomorphies of
Coelurosaria, such as pleuroceolous dorsals and sacrals, a mesopubic pelvis
and a reduced ischium, The "tamano" of the specimen is comparable to the
tyrannosaurids of the Northern Hemisphere.<<
I'm not sure what "tamano" is.<<
Double checked and it wasn't my spelling this time :)
Thanks for the translation.
>>"I take it they think its a tyrannosaurid. Not surprising to me. It's only
matter of time before an Abelisaurid (or even a spinosaurid) from Hemisfrio
Norte is found..."
Isn't Spinosaurus known from the Northern Hemisphere? And Suchomimus, too?
And if you apply one of the two definitions of Spinosauridae, you could get
Baryonyx as well.<<
Yes, but I meant North America not the Northern Hemisphere, sorry for the
confusion and not being more explicit.
