Rauhut has subsequently named that ilium Aviatyrannis jurassica (Rauhut, O. W.
M. 2003. A tyrannosauroid dinosaur from the Upper
Jurassic of Portugal. Palaeontology 46:903-910).
There are also tyrannosauroid premaxillary teeth present in both the Morrison
and the Guimarota (possibly referrable to either
Stokesosaurus and/or Aviatyrannis).
