A Second Soundly Sleeping Dragon: New Anatomical Details of the Chinese Troodontid Mei long with Implications for Phylogeny and Taphonomy
TLDR
A second nearly complete, articulated specimen of the basal troodontid Mei long is reported from the Early Cretaceous lower Yixian Formation, Liaoning Province, China, strengthening the hypothesis that both specimens were preserved in a stereotypical life position.
Palaeontology: Parental care in an ornithischian dinosaur
TLDR
A dramatic specimen of the small ornithischian dinosaur Psittacosaurus sp.
A NEW BASAL LINEAGE OF EARLY CRETACEOUS BIRDS FROM CHINA AND ITS IMPLICATIONS ON THE EVOLUTION OF THE AVIAN TAIL
TLDR
It is inferred from the specimen that during the evolution of the avian tail, a decrease in relative caudal length and number of vertebrae preceded the distal fusion of caudals into a pygostyle.
Diversification in an Early Cretaceous avian genus: evidence from a new species of Confuciusornis from China
TLDR
A new species of Confuciusornis, the oldest known beaked bird, is erected based on a nearly complete fossil from the Early Cretaceous Yixian Formation of western Liaoning, northeast China, which suggests an arboreal habit of the new bird.
Phylogenetic support for a specialized clade of Cretaceous enantiornithine birds with information from a new species
TLDR
Shanweiniao provides new information on the anatomy of longipterygids, and preserves a rectricial morphology previously unknown to enantiornithines, with at least four tail feathers closely arranged, which supports the hypothesis that enantiORNithines were strong fliers and adds to the diversity of known tail morphologies of these Cretaceous birds.
Phylogenetic Support for a Specialized Clade of Cretaceous Enantiornithine Birds with Information from a New Species
ABSTRACT A new species of enantiornithine bird from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation of northeastern China is reported. The new taxon, Shanweiniao cooperorum, possesses several enantiornithine
Discovery of Enhydrictis (Mustelidae, Carnivora, Mammalia) cranium in Puwan, Dalian, Northeast China demonstrates repeated intracontinental migration during the Pleistocene
Abstract The tribe Lyncodontini (Mammalia, Carnivora, Mustelidae) was widely distributed in Eurasia during the Plio-Pleistocene. In East Asia, only Eirictis and Oriensictis are known so far. Herein,

Abstract Recently, rich fossiliferous deposits dated to the late Cenozoic have been discovered from Jinyuan Cave at Luotuo Hill, an extremely large-sized cave site situated within in the Dalian Puwan
Equus qingyangensis in Jinyuan Cave and its palaeozoographic significance
Abstract The discovery of a fossil Equus skull in Jinyuan Cave, Luotuo Hill, Dalian, is reported herein. The specimen was identified as Equus qingyangensis, based on the complexity of morphological
The giant short-faced hyena Pachycrocuta brevirostris (Mammalia, Carnivora, Hyaenidae) from Northeast Asia: A reinterpretation of subspecies differentiation and intercontinental dispersal
Abstract The giant short-faced hyena, Pachycrocuta brevirostris, was the largest and most spectacular bone-cracking hyena that ever existed. Although already extinct long ago, it was extensively
