Abstract We report the well preserved skeleton of a small theropod dinosaur, Nqwebasaurus thwazi, gen. et sp. nov., from the Lower Cretaceous Kirkwood Formation of South Africa. Nqwebasaurus has an elongate three-digit manus with a partially opposable first digit, a long and slender pes with a highly reduced metatarsal IV, and preserves gastroliths (stomach stones) in its abdominal region. As a basal coelurosaurian, Nqwebasaurus pushes back the Gondwanan record of this derived group of…

Abstract. A new genus and species of ornithomimosaur, Afromimus tenerensis, is described based on a fragmentary skeleton from the Lower Cretaceous (Aptian—Albian) El Rhaz Formation of Niger. The

A Basal Coelurosaur (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Late Jurassic (Oxfordian) of the Shishugou Formation in Wucaiwan, People's Republic of China

A cladistic analysis of Zuolong salleei in a broadly sampled theropod data matrix recovers it as a basal coelurosaur, making it one of the oldest coel Kurosaur fossils yet known that preserves both cranial and postcranial bones.

EARLY CRETACEOUS ORNITHOMIMOSAURS ( DINOSAURIA : COELUROSAURIA ) FROM AFRICA

A new genus and species of ornithomimosaur, Afromimus tenerensis, is described based on a fragmentary skeleton from the Lower Cretaceous (Aptian–Albian) El Rhaz Formation of Niger. The holotype and

A new theropod dinosaur, Lepidocheirosaurus natatilis gen. et sp. nov., from the Upper Jurassic (?Tithonian) deposits of the Kulinda locality (Transbaikal Area, Russia) is described based manus

New Patagonian Cretaceous theropod sheds light about the early radiation of Coelurosauria

Bicentenaria amplifies the array of basal coelurosaurs that inhabited Gondwana during the Cretaceous, also including compsognathids, Aniksosaurus and Santanaraptor, and reveals the importance of the new taxon in the understanding of the early diversification of Coelurosauria.

The oldest coelurosaurian

This discovery of a therizinosaur from the Early Jurassic Lower Lufeng Formation of Yunnan, China is the oldest definitive record of a coelurosaurian theropod, which therefore minimizes the divergence time for members of the group.

A new giant carnivorous dinosaur from the Cretaceous of Patagonia

A new giant carnivorous dinosaur from the Upper Creta-ceous of northwestern Patagonia (Argentina) is reported, characterized by a proportionally low skull, a reduced shoulder girdle, and robust vertebrae and hind limbs, and provides an opportunity to exam-ine the Gondwanan dinosaur palaeocommunities and their relation to those from Laurasia.

Baryonyx, a remarkable new theropod dinosaur

The study so far suggests that the Surrey dinosaur was a typical large theropod in certain respects, resembling, for example Allosaurus, however, it differs sufficiently from all known dinosaurs to merit designation as the representative of a new species, genus and family.

Early Cretaceous Dinosaurs from the Sahara

The discovery of dinosaurian skeletons from Lower Cretaceous beds in the southern Sahara shows that several lineages of tetanuran theropods and broad-toothed sauropods had a cosmopolitan distribution across Pangaea before the onset of continental fragmentation.
