So, can we finally decide what Nanotyrannus is now? (Or did we, I’m kinda behind in the world of Dino news)

I think it's considered a juvenile now. But I'm not sure either.

Most researchers consider individuals formerly assigned to Nanotyrannus to be juvenile T. rex, but a few still advocate for generic separation.

Interesting, any particular reason why?

The majority contend that the characteristics used to distinguish Nanotyrannus are just due to individual variation and ontogenetic change.

I remember reading an article that said a lot of Juveniles of species like Triceratops had been misclassified as different species altogether.
