"Dromaeosauridae" is known in Maastrichtian beds in Europe and in general
teeth in Maastrichtian beds referred to Dromaeosauridae in North America.
then, these are usually "velociraptorine" teeth and as should become soon
apparent, these don't refer to a single stabel taxon, but an adaptable
morphotype prone to convergence.
Perhaps not convergence, but in any way the "velociraptorine" type seems to
be the plesiomorphy -- *Sinornithosaurus* has it.
