Good question. I don't know. I had assumed that _Gallimimus mongoliensis_
was valid, but I haven't actually read Kobayashi and Barsbold (2006). I'll
treat it as a nomen nudum (and remove it from the list) until I find out for
Kobayashi, Y. and Barsbold, R. (2006). Ornithomimids from the Nemegt
Formation of Mongolia. J. Paleont. Soc. Korea 22: 195-207.
These nomina nuda are a real nuisance. I'm not blaming Kobayashi and
Barsbold, since the name had been floating around for a long time.
