Yep. Pretty straight forward descriptive anatomical stuff: it was the paper
in which the forelimb elements of _Alectrosaurus_ were shown to be from a
segnosaur (therzinosauroid), rather than from _Alectrosaurus_ itself. (Once
upon a time, _Alectrosaurus_ was famous for being a tyrannosaurid with
rather large arms...).
And, from Tim Williams:

Also, _Elaphrosaurus bambergi_ is from Tendaguru as well.
