A new dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur, Kansaignathus sogdianus gen. et sp. nov., is described based on a dentary from the Yalovach Formation (Santonian) at Kansai locality in northern Fergana Valley (Tajikistan) collected by Paleontological Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR in 1963–1964. Dentary has 12 tooth alveoli and not downturned anterior end. There is a chin prominence. Dorsal margin is concave and ventral margin is convex. There are two rows of vascular foramina on the… 


A new dromaeosaurid (Dinosauria: Theropoda) with Asian affinities from the latest Cretaceous of North America
Phylogenetic analysis suggests Acheroraptor is a velociraptorine that is more closely related to Asian dromaeosaurids, including Tsaagan and Velocirptor, than it is to Dromaeosaurus, Saurornitholestes, or any other taxon from North America.
New data on duck-billed dinosaurs (Ornithischia, Hadrosauridae) from the upper cretaceous of Tajikistan
Duck-billed dinosaur remains (Hadrosauridae) from the Yalovach Formation (Lower Santonian) of the Isfara 2 and Kansai localities (northern Tajikistan) are described. Most of them belong to a
New Dromaeosaurid Dinosaur (Theropoda, Dromaeosauridae) from New Mexico and Biodiversity of Dromaeosaurids at the end of the Cretaceous
Dromaeosaurids (Theropoda: Dromaeosauridae), a group of dynamic, swift predators, have a sparse fossil record, particularly at the time of their extinction near the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary.

ABSTRACT Dromaeosaurids were rare components of most Late Cretaceous terrestrial ecosystems and are poorly known from high palaeolatitudes. New dromaeosaurid material, including a frontal and
New information on the anatomy and relationships of Dromaeosaurus albertensis (Dinosauria: Theropoda)
Repreparation and restudy of the holotype of Dromaeosaurus albertensis has produced new anatomical information useful for evaluating the relationships of dromaeosaurids.
A Review of Dromaeosaurid Systematics and Paravian Phylogeny
This study provides the most detailed and comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of paravians to date in order to explore the phylogenetic history of dromaeosaurid taxa and reviews and revises the membership of DromaeOSauridae and provides an apomorphy-based diagnosis for all valid taxa.
On the finding of ornithomimid dinosaurs (Saurischia, Ornithomimosauria) in the Upper Cretaceous beds of Tajikistan
Fragmentary remains of ornithomimids (Ornithomimidae indet.) from the Lower Santonian (Upper Cretaceous) Kansai locality in northwestern Fergana (Tajikistan) are described, and the composition of its
