Re: Geographic Distribution of Maniraptora
Check Makovicky et al. 2006, the paper about Buitreraptor. They propose that
Neuquenraptor should be considered junior synonim of Unenlagia paynemilli...

And yes, Nequenraptor and Araucanoraptor are the same animal (I think the
latter is better...).

geographic distribution of all Maniraptorans, we are starting with one group,
and later, will look at them as a whole.
