Variraptor (meaning "Var River Theif") is a genus of coelurosaur (a dromaeosaurid, to be exact) from Late Cretaceous France. It was found in 1992-1995 by Patrick Mechin and Annie Mechin-Salessy. It was first named as a species of the dubious Elopteryx, but in 1998, after it was proven as it's own species in 1997, it was named Variraptor, and the type species in V. mechinorum, which means "The Mechin Couple's Var River Theif".
