Here we report on an enigmatic small theropod(More)
Discoveries of integumentary coverings on non-avian theropod dinosaurs are becoming commonplace.

With ten extant families, salamanders (urodeles) are one of the three major groups of modern amphibians (lissamphibians). Extant salamanders are often used as a model system to assess fundamental issues of developmental, morphological and biogeographical evolution. Unfortunately, our understanding of these issues has been hampered by the paucity of fossil(More)
