RE: Paronychodon teeth are NOT homalocephalid fangs - killing an internet rumor

Your second point is also true. Just look at how many coelurosaur bones are known versus teeth from the Dinosaur Park Formation. Or how few published North American avimimid or mononykine elements there are.

It is possible that some _Caenagnathus_ jaw fragments may prove to be "avimimids", given that _Avimimus_, _Elmisaurus_ and _Chirostenotes_ all appear to be oviraptorosaurs. It could be that "avimimids", "caenagnathids" and "elmisaurids" in fact represent the same clade of basal oviraptorosaurs.
