The new Dinosaur Park ornithomimid is about _Gallimimus_-sized. Big by
ornithomimd standards; but not a patch on _Deinocheirus_.
One table caption includes this note: "_Ricardoestesia isosceles_ and
_Paronychodon lacustris_ are considered synonyms of _Ricardoestesia gilmorei_
The reference cited is:
LONGRICH, N. 2008. Small theropod teeth from the Lance Formation of Wyoming.
135–158. In SANKEY, J. T. and BASZIO, S. (eds). Vertebrate microfossil
assemblages: their role in paleoecology and paleogeography. Indiana University
Press, Bloomington, IN, 304 pp.
Having not seen this particular paper, does Longrich officially synonymize
these three species (_Ricardoestesia gilmorei_, _R. isosceles_, _Paronychodon
lacustris_)? In this case, _Paronychodon lacustris_ would get priority. But
(as I said) having not seen the paper, I don't know what kind of synonymy it's
