These small dinosaurs were sold together in a single blister pack, since they are much smaller than the other, so putting two togehter, Kenner could sell them for the same price than the others. It also makes sense to sell two together, since such a small dinosaur lived in groups and hunted other bigger dinosaurs attacking in groups.
The dinosaur does not appear in the movie, maybe in the book by Michael Crichton, which I haven´t read. In The Lost World, a group of Compsognathus kill one of the characters, but these were much smaller than the Coleophysis, and in the movie, the scene is more dramatic with the smaller "Compys".
The feature of this two creatures is that they are articulated and have a wire to articulate neck and tail. With this feature, the dinosaurs are really poseable, and really fun to play with. ("Sprinters - w/ Constrictor Bodies!")
