If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.

Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
B. P. Pérez-Moreno and J. L. Sanz 1997The most important traits that place Pelecanimimus inside Ornithomimosauria are related to the forelimb skeleton, especially the derived condition of the hand for such an ancient ornithomimosaur.
