Not a typo.

The type is a juvenile with as-yet-not-fully-prepared postcrania.

Additional material includes a partial skull & skeleton of a juvenile, a
lacrimal, and a partial skull and skeleton of an adult. Long time tyrant
fans have encountered the latter (OMNH 10131) before as a possible
"Aublysodon" specimen (Lehman & Carpenter 1990) or the the "Kirtland Shale
aublysodontine" (Holtz 2001).
