New paper by Thomas Cullen, Phil Currie and colleagues on the biostratigraphic and morphometric data in the Dinosaur Park Formation. 

 

Note: As a result, along with overlapping morphology and stratigraphic position Latenivenatrix may be synonymous with Stenonychosaurus.

Not sure its "may be" but "it is" based on these statements

"Latenivenatrix mcmasterae is a subjective junior synonym of Stenonychosaurus inequalis", "this leaves Stenonychosaurus inequalis as the sole troodontid currently recognized in the DPF"

That's why I said "may be" b/c  of "subjective" personally I think there are enough differences for them to be separate for now but we'll see. The good thing is the DPF now has more comprehensive biostratagraphic data.
