Harpymimus (meaning "harpy mimic") is an ornithomimosaurian dinosaur that lived during the Early Cretaceous in Mongolia around 107-100 million years ago. It was discovered in 1981 and was named in 1984.[1] Harpymimus either belonged within its own family, Harpymimidae, or within the Deinocheiridae.[2]
