Ji et al. (2007) formally removed the large(r) specimen GMV 2124 from


I have the impression (from the following post, and elsewhere) that
Nick Longrich thinks (or at least thought) that GMV 2124 was a
coelurosaurian, but that _Sinosauropteryx_ itself (i.e., the holotype
and the remaining referred specimens) was possibly non-coelurosaurian
or carnosaurian.
