Both are single tooth crowns; the first find, a
21-mm crown, is a dromaeosaurine, Dromaeosauroides
bornholmensis Christiansen & Bonde 2003, possibly the only
true dromaeosaur from the Lower Cretaceous of Europe.
Estimated length of the animal is over 3 m.

"Only true dromaeosaur"? Are Variraptor and Pyroraptor no longer considered dromaeosaurs? Is this find the same as the Denmark dromaeosaurid tooth reported a few years ago?

Only true dromaeosaur from the Lower Cretaceous of Europe. Variraptor and Pyroraptor are Upper Cretaceous.
