Tyrannosaur project is still going on, during my absence I ahvent stopped drawing them. Here is Labocania medium sized tyrannosaur from mexico. Some consider it to be an abelisaurid.

what is the consensus on abelisour-tyrannosaur relationships? does anybody know?

They are not related. Abelisaurs are ceratosaurs and tyrannosaurs are coelurosaurs.

then the remains must be very fragmentary if the classification allows for such wiggle room

Yep, they are.

We should add that with the fact that tyrannosaurids and abelisaurids are quite similar in their own right...

I wouldn't say they are that similar, they are just similar in that they are both large theropods with puny arms and large skulls.

Well, they are textbook examples of convergent evolution, I think...

All the similarities you said put together makes them quite similar...

I suppose.The similarities are quite faint though.
