This is interesting, since both sinraptorid-like and
carcharodontosaurid-like material has come from the EK deposits of
Victoria down here in Australia. Perhaps the "dwarf allosauroid" wasn't
such a dwarf after all, if the large partial manual claw that resembles
that of some carchies is from a similar animal (if not the same species)
as the Fukuiraptor-like astragalus.
