A *very advanced* basal ornithischian with "dinobristles". That is by far less 
informative as it seems; a lot can have happened in 65 Ma of temporal and half 
a world of spatial distance.

It is like using brood parasitism in cuckoos and cowbirds and nest-sharing in 
ostriches to argue that the original neornithine was a brood parasite.
