Ornithomimoides ("bird mimic-like") is a dubious genus of theropod dinosaur, from the Late Cretaceous period (Maastrichtian stage, sometime between 70–66 mya) of India.[1] 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 big species of abelisaur, and may have measured around 6.2 to 9 meters (20 to 30 feet) in length.
