Definitely not formal yet. Quoting that paper:
"A nearly complete skeleton of ornithomimid (MPD 100/14) was found from the
Baishin Tsav of southeastern Mongolia (where a primitive
but toothless ornithomimosaur, _Garudimimus brevipes_, was discovered) and was
imfornally [sic] called "_Gallimimus mongoliensis_"
