This is no surprise if these three turn out to be one and the same species.

_Parvicursor_ leapfrogs quite a few nodes to get here - out of the Alvarezsauridae and right next to _Patagopteryx_. Very interesting.

The mess between carnosaurs and tyrannoraptorans is cleaning up, with only
basal tyrannosaurs, two coelurids and Therizinosaurus left there.

What's pulling _Therizinosaurus_ out of the Maniraptora, away from the other segnosaurs?
