_Gallimimus bullatus_ is a very, very well established ornithomimid. It is
the ONLY species of ornithomimid for which there is a comprehensive
osteology (OSMOLSKA, H., RONIEWICZ, E & BARSBOLD, R. (1972) - A new
dinosaur, Gallimimus bullatus n. gen., n. sp. (Ornithomimidae) from the
Upper Cretaceous of Mongolia. Palaeontol. Polonica, 27: 103-143.) It's the
one I named "Bullatosauria" after.
Heck, it is even the species featured in Jurassic Park!!
