A new carcharodontosaurid theropod from the Huincul Formation (Aptian-Cenomanian, Upper Cretaceous) of Neuquen Province, Argentina, is described. [...] Key Result Mapusaurus roseae n. gen., n. sp. has cervical neural spines and distally tapering epipophyses, tall dorsal neural spines, central pleurocoels as far back as the first sacral vertebra, accessory caudal neural spines, stout humerus with poorly defined distal condyles, fused metacarpals, ilium with brevis fossa extending deeply into ischial peduncle…Expand
A New Megaraptoran Dinosaur (Dinosauria, Theropoda, Megaraptoridae) from the Late Cretaceous of Patagonia
TLDR
Murusraptor is unique in having several diagnostic features that include anterodorsal process of lacrimal longer than height of preorbital process, and a thick, shelf-like thickening on the lateral surface of surangular ventral to the groove between the anterior surangular foramen and the insert for the uppermost intramandibular process of the dentary.
Basal Abelisaurid and Carcharodontosaurid Theropods from the Lower Cretaceous Elrhaz Formation of Niger
We report the discovery of basal abelisaurid and carcharodontosaurid theropods from the mid Cretaceous (Aptian—Albian, ca. 112 Ma) Elrhaz Formation of the Niger Republic. The abelisaurid, Kryptops
A new carcharodontosaurian theropod (Dinosauria: Saurischia) from the Lower Cretaceous of Thailand
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses revealed that Siamraptor is a basal taxon of Carcharodontosauria, involving a new sight of the paleobiogeographical context of this group.
An Early Cretaceous, medium-sized carcharodontosaurid theropod (Dinosauria, Saurischia) from the Mulichinco Formation (upper Valanginian), Neuquén Province, Patagonia, Argentina
TLDR
This medium sized theropod was found associated with remains of the dicraeosaurid sauropod Pilmatueia, indeterminate diplodocid remains, and a yet unidentified iguanodontian-like ornithopod.
Small-sized abelisaurid (Theropoda: Ceratosauria) remains from the Upper Cretaceous of northwest Patagonia, Argentina
Abstract A new abelisaurid theropod from the Cenomanian of Candeleros Formation (Neuquen Province, NW Patagonia, Argentina) is described. It includes an isolated frontal, partial pelvis, two fused
A New Titanosaur (Dinosauria, Sauropoda) from the Upper Cretaceous (Cerro Lisandro Formation) of Mendoza Province, Argentina
Abstract. Quetecsaurus rusconii gen. et sp. nov. is a new titanosaur (Dinosauria, Sauropoda) from the Neuquén Basin of Mendoza Province, Argentina. The specimen comes from red mudstones of the
A new abelisauroid (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Huincul Formation (lower Upper Cretaceous, Neuquén Basin) of Patagonia, Argentina
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses recovered Huinculsaurus as most closely related to the Late Jurassic Elaphrosaurus than to other Cretaceous abelisauroids, suggesting the persistence of the elaphrosaurine lineage in South America up to the early Late Cret Jurassic.
A bizarre, humped Carcharodontosauria (Theropoda) from the Lower Cretaceous of Spain
TLDR
An almost complete and exquisitely preserved skeleton of a medium-sized theropod from the Lower Cretaceous series (Barremian stage) Konservat-Lagerstätte of Las Hoyas in Cuenca, Spain is described and it is proposed that Concavenator has integumentary follicular structures inserted on the ulna, as in modern birds.
A thick-skulled theropod (Dinosauria, Saurischia) from the Upper Cretaceous of Morocco with implications for carcharodontosaurid cranial evolution
Abstract In this study, we erect Sauroniops pachytholus gen. et sp. nov., a large-bodied theropod dinosaur from the Cenomanian (Upper Cretaceous) of Morocco, on the basis of an almost complete

A large Cretaceous theropod from Patagonia, Argentina, and the evolution of carcharodontosaurids
TLDR
It is suggested that carcharodontosaurid radiated in Gondwana sharing with spinosaurids the role of top-predators until their extinction in Cenomanian–Turonian times, and offers a better understanding of the evolution of Southern theropod faunas.

A new giant carnivorous dinosaur from the Cretaceous of Patagonia
TLDR
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.

TLDR
The skull of Herrerasaurus ischigualastensis has a rectangular profile and a transversely narrow snout and other features of the skull constitute dinosaurian synapomorphies, such as the loss of the postfrontal and small post-temporal opening.
