Temporal range: Late Cretaceous, 70–66 Ma
|Vertebra of O. mobilis|
von Huene and Matley, 1933
Ornithomimoides ("bird mimic-like") is a dubious genus of small theropod dinosaur, from the Late Cretaceous period (Maastrichtian stage, sometime between 70–66 mya) of India. Two species have been identified, though they are known only from isolated vertebrae. O. barasimlensis is known from five dorsal vertebrae, and O. mobilis from four smaller vertebrae, found at the same location. It is possible that they were very small species of abelisaur, and may have measured around two meters (six feet) in length.
