  I can comment on this, as the skulls are entirely different, having seen
casts of the "ronaldo" bit. This is a skull that Lü mentioned way back and is
finally getting described. In the selfsame paper, Lü mentioned a specimen of
oviraptorsaur from Guangdong Province that is named as a new taxon in his
thesis, and so obviously, there's more ovi-goodness coming. Not to mention the
2-4 other "new taxa" currently residing in private hands that I KNOW about. I
have Lü's figure of the skull if anyone is intrested in seeing the thing.
