Subject: [dinosaur] R: Re: R: French ornithomimosaur skeleton on display + Protoceratops + moreExactly, the arms of the new species are very small, absolutely different from the long arms of the ornithomimosaurs. And yes, the resemblance to Elaphrosaurus I saw in conjunction with the similarity between the latter and Limusaurus.However, we will see it as soon as the description is published ...

That said, Limusaurus (which at least some analyses place as the sister taxon of Elaphrosaurus) is toothless as an adult.
Also, the hands in Limusaurus and Elaphrosaurus are among the most reduced in theropods, while known ornithomimosaurs have working (clamping) hands.

But note that the French ornithomimosaur apparently lacked a hand with fingers and had a stump forelimb (43+ specimens so far show no evidence of hand bones or digits). Manual elements (metacarpals) are known for Elaphrosaurus. The skull is also toothless and had a beak--no skull known for Elaphrosaurus so hard to compare.
