Abstract A reexamination of the French Compsognathus corallestris, from the Portlandian lithographic limestones of the Tithonian of southern France, provides new cranial and postcranial information crucial for a better understanding of the taxon Compsognathus. The French Compsognathus is almost completely preserved either as actual bony elements or as impressions, lacking only the distal portion of its tail, and some of the manual phalanges. It is preserved in two blocks, one containing the… 

The osteology and affinities of Eotyrannus lengi, a tyrannosauroid theropod from the Wealden Supergroup of southern England

The analysis supports the inclusion of Megaraptora within Tyrannosauroidea and thus increases Cretaceous tyrannosauroid diversity and disparity and supports a proposal that Eotyrannus might belong within Megarptora, however, is based on character states not present in the taxon.

Skull Anatomy and Pneumaticity of the Enigmatic Coelurosaurian Theropod Bicentenaria argentina.

The morphological analysis indicates that Bicentenaria shares many cranial features with other basal coelurosaurs as compsognathids, Ornitholestes, and tyrannosauroids, but otherwise, results of this analysis show that Bcentenaria exhibits a set of traits unique to this taxon.

A New Carcharodontosaurian Theropod from the Lusitanian Basin: Evidence of Allosauroid Sympatry in the European Late Jurassic

ABSTRACT Carcharodontosaurian allosauroids were temporally restricted to the Cretaceous, being known from all land masses with the exception of Antarctica. In addition to Veterupristisaurus from

A new Chinese specimen indicates that ‘protofeathers’ in the Early Cretaceous theropod dinosaur Sinosauropteryx are degraded collagen fibres

A new specimen of Sinosauropteryx is reported which shows that the integumental structures proposed as protofeathers are the remains of structural fibres that provide toughness.

Morphological Diversity and Evolution of the Jugal in Dinosaurs

The conspicuous jugal ornaments seen in many ornithischian dinosaurs, like the less striking ones documented in some saurischians, may have played an important role in the social behavior of the species that possessed them, adding to the evidence that agonistic behavior was likely widespread among Ornithischians in particular.

The oldest Archaeopteryx (Theropoda: Avialiae): a new specimen from the Kimmeridgian/Tithonian boundary of Schamhaupten, Bavaria

The iconic primeval bird Archaeopteryx was so far mainly known from the Altmühltal Formation of Bavaria, southern Germany, with one specimen having been found in the overlying Mörnsheim Formation, but a new specimen from the earliest Tithonian Painten Formation of Schamhaupten (Bavaria) represents the so far oldest representative of the genus.

The integument of Psittacosaurus from Liaoning Province, China: taphonomy, epidermal patterns and color of a ceratopsian dinosaur

The data here enable to reconstruct the colors of Psittacosaurus as predominantly black and amber/brown, in cryptic patterns, somewhat dull, but useful to a prey animal, and suggest that melanin was the dominant chemical involved in the coloration of PsITTacosaurus.

A large Compsognathid from the early cretaceous Yixian formation of China

A new, large compsognathid theropod from the Early Cretaceous Yixian Formation deposits of Liaoning Province, People's Republic of China is described and the phylogenetic position of Huaxiagnathus orientalis fell out at the base of the Compso‐gnathidae, as it lacks the forelimb adaptations of more derived comps Cognathids.

The skull of a relative of the stem-group bird Mononykus

The configuration of the temporal region of the skull and its articulation with the rostrum indicate the capability for prokinetic movement in which flexing occurs at the junction of the upper jaw and neurocranium, and support the idea that prokinesis preceded other types of avian intracranial kinesis.

Phylogenetic analysis indicates that, among known theropods with integumentary filaments or feathers, Dromaeosauridae is the most bird-like, and is more closely related to birds than is Troodontidae.
