So yet another oviraptorid from China...

Weakly downturned rostrum of the lower jaw and an elongated mandible... but 
isn't the specimen preserved dorso-ventrally, with a skull crashed and possibly 
compacted? Remember that recent paper on Lujiatun psittacosaurids?

Radius/humerus lenght ratio of 0.7... but could it possibly be such of 
ontogenetic reasons?

Not much can be told about variation in this and some other oviraptorid 
species...

Just thinking out loud...

Any thoughts?
