A Jurassic ceratosaur from China helps clarify avian digital homologies
A new basal Ceratosaur from the Oxfordian stage of the Jurassic period of China is reported, representing the first known Asian ceratosaur and the only known beaked, herbivorous Jurassic theropod, and possesses a strongly reduced manual digit I, documenting a complex pattern of digital reduction within the Theropoda.
Basal tyrannosauroids from China and evidence for protofeathers in tyrannosauroids
A new basal tyrannosauroid from the Early Cretaceous Yixian Formation of western Liaoning, China, which is small and gracile and has relatively long arms with three-fingered hands and provides the first direct fossil evidence that Tyrannosauroids had protofeathers.
A basal tyrannosauroid dinosaur from the Late Jurassic of China
The tyrannosauroid fossil record is mainly restricted to Cretaceous sediments of Laurasia, although some very fragmentary Jurassic specimens have been referred to this group. Here we report a new
A new feathered maniraptoran dinosaur fossil that fills a morphological gap in avian origin
Recent fossil discoveries have substantially reduced the morphological gap between non-avian and avian dinosaurs, yet avians including Archaeopteryx differ from non-avian theropods in their limb
Fungal diversity notes 367–490: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
Eight new genera, 101 new species, two new combinations, one neotype, four reference specimens, new host or distribution records for eight species and one alternative morphs are introduced in this paper.
Fungal diversity notes 491–602: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
This is a continuity of a series of taxonomic and phylogenetic papers on the fungi where materials were collected from many countries, examined and described and DNA sequence data is analysed from concatenated datasets to infer phylogenetic relationships and substantiate systematic positions of taxa within appropriate ranks.
Fungal diversity notes 1151–1276: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions on genera and species of fungal taxa
The present study describes two new families, 12 new genera, 82 new species, five new combinations and 25 new records on new hosts and new geographical distributions as well as sexual-asexual reports.
Fungal diversity notes 603–708: taxonomic and phylogenetic notes on genera and species
This study introduces a new family Fuscostagonosporaceae in Dothideomycetes and introduces the new ascomycete genera Acericola, Castellaniomyces, Dictyosporina and Longitudinalis.
The Faces of Fungi database: fungal names linked with morphology, phylogeny and human impacts
The present paper introduces the FoF database to the scientific community and briefly reviews some of the problems associated with classification and identification of the main fungal groups.
