Deinocheiridae is a family of ornithomimosaurian dinosaurs. The family was originally named by Halszka Osmólska and Roniewicz in 1970, including only the type genus Deinocheirus. In a 2014 study by Yuong-Nam Lee and others published in the journal Nature, it was found that Deinocheiridae was a valid family.
