Here's a question; Are Qianzhousaurus and Alioramus related also to Nanotyrannus? certain similarities are starting to present themselves and it is of my opinion that Nanotyrannus, should it prove to be a separate genus, may be a member of the Alioramini.

The paper actually addresses this.
"‘Nanotyrannus’ does not exhibit the extreme longirostrine morphology of alioramins. ...Therefore, if ‘Nanotyrannus’ is a distinct taxon, it does not appear to be a member of Alioramini, and may represent a separate acquisition of longirostrine morphology among tyrannosaurids."

wow. did not expect that so quickly. maybe it was a case of convergent evolution if Nanotyrannus does prove to be distinct. possible?

Skull length is over 40% femur length, compared to about equal in all other tyrannosaurids

First a Deinocheirus skull, then a placenameotyrant. Not exactly what Théoden called "a grim morn, and a glad day, and a golden sunset", but that's OT. Beautiful work as always!
