Re: Oldest dromaeosaur?

The oldest diagnostic dromaeosaurid is Graciliraptor lujiatunensis, from the 
lower part of the Yixian, early Barremian. There are purported dromaeosaurid 
teeth from the Bathonian of England.
Is Nuthetes destructor still considered an ostensible dromaeosaurid? If so, 
then it would be the oldest named taxon, of Berriasian age.
