Re: Nemegtia barsboldi

I believe this is the specimen that inspired "Ronaldoraptor" on p. 134 of Gee & Rey's _A Field Guide to Dinosaurs_

Can't comment on that, as I haven't seen that book, but I didn't mention that this specimen has seen press before: it's GIN 100/2112, formerly PC 100/2112, described as a new specimen of _Ingenia_ in:

Lü, J., Dong, Z., Azuma, Y., Barsbold, R., and Tomida, Y. 2002. Oviraptorosaurs compared to birds. In: Z. Zhou, and F. Zhang (eds.), Proceedings of the 5th Symposium of the Society of Avian Paleontology and Evolution, Beijing, 1-4 June 2000. pp. 175-189. Science Press, Beijing.
