Dromaeosaurids from the Maastrichtian of North America have a poor fossil record and are known largely from isolated teeth, which have typically been referred to taxa based on more complete material from earlier Campanian strata. [...] Key Result Acheroraptor temertyorum gen. et sp. nov. is differentiated from other dromaeosaurids on the basis of a hypertrophied postantral wall that projects posteriorly into the antorbital fenestra, a maxillary fenestra positioned low in the antorbital fossa and directly…Expand
A New Dromaeosaurid (Dinosauria: Coelurosauria) from Khulsan, Central Mongolia
ABSTRACT Dromaeosaurid theropods represent a rare but important clade of nonavialan dinosaurs. Their close evolutionary relationship to modern birds has placed them at the center of paleontologicalExpand
The first juvenile dromaeosaurid (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from Arctic Alaska
TLDR
This is the first confirmed non-dental fossil specimen from a member of Dromaeosauridae in the Arctic, expanding on the role of Beringia as a dispersal route for this clade between Asia and North America. Expand
A New Theropod Dinosaur (Theropoda, Dromaeosauridae) from the Late Cretaceous of Tajikistan
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 ValleyExpand
A High-Latitude Dromaeosaurid, Boreonykus certekorum, gen. et sp. nov. (Theropoda), from the Upper Campanian Wapiti Formation, West-Central Alberta
ABSTRACT Dromaeosaurids were rare components of most Late Cretaceous terrestrial ecosystems and are poorly known from high palaeolatitudes. New dromaeosaurid material, including a frontal andExpand
A new hadrosauroid (Dinosauria: Ornithopoda) from the Late Cretaceous Baynshire Formation of the Gobi Desert (Mongolia)
TLDR
A new genus and species of non-hadrosaurid hadrosauroid, Gobihadros mongoliensis, is described from a virtually complete and undeformed skull and postcranial skeleton collected from the Baynshire Formation of the central and eastern Gobi Desert, Mongolia. Expand
New records of theropods from the latest Cretaceous of New Jersey and the Maastrichtian Appalachian fauna
TLDR
Two theropod teeth from the Mount Laurel Formation are reported, one of which resembles the dentition of the tyrannosauroid Dryptosaurus aquilunguis among latest Cretaceous forms in being heavily mediolaterally compressed and showing many moderately developed enamel crenulations, and increases the diversity of the Maastrichtian dinosaur fauna of Appalachia.

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.Expand
A large dromaeosaurid from North Carolina
Abstract During the Cretaceous period, North America was divided into two landmasses, the eastern Appalachia and western Laramidia. Recent research on several sites scattered across the easternExpand
A Late Cretaceous diversification of Asian oviraptorid dinosaurs: evidence from a new species preserved in an unusual posture
TLDR
A sixth diagnostic oviraptorosaur from Ganzhou is reported, Tongtianlong limosus gen. et sp. Expand
A new Late Cretaceous iguanomorph from North America and the origin of New World Pleurodonta (Squamata, Iguania)
TLDR
It is suggested that crown pleurodontans were restricted to the low-latitude Neotropics prior to their early Palaeogene first appearances in the mid-latitudes of North America, and a phylogenetic link between Campanian-age North American and East Asian stem iguanomorphs is revealed. Expand

A new dromaeosaurid (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Upper Cretaceous Wulansuhai Formation of Inner Mongolia, China
TLDR
A number of cranial and dental features seen in L. exquisitus and T. mangas suggest that these two taxa are probably intermediate in systematic position between known basal and derived dromaeosaurids, and the discovery of Linheraptor exquis Titus is thus important for understanding the evolution of some salient feature seen in the derived dronaeosaurusids. Expand
A microraptorine (Dinosauria–Dromaeosauridae) from the Late Cretaceous of North America
TLDR
Hesperonychus is the youngest known member of this lineage, extending the temporal range of the clade by 45 million years, and it is the first microraptorine known from North America, providing further evidence for an affinity between the dinosaur faunas of North America and Asia. Expand
A New Species Of Velociraptor (Dinosauria: Dromaeosauridae) From the Upper Cretaceous Of Northern China
Abstract A new dromaeosaurid dinosaur—Velociraptor osmolskae n. sp.—is described on the basis of associated paired maxillae and a left lacrimal discovered in Campanian (Upper Cretaceous) deposits atExpand
A New Troodontid Theropod Dinosaur from the Lower Cretaceous of Utah
TLDR
A theropod maxilla from the Lower Cretaceous Cedar Mountain Formation of Utah is described and a phylogenetic analysis is performed to determine its phylogenetic position, distinctive enough to assign to a new genus and species, Geminiraptor suarezarum. Expand
A Small Derived Theropod from Öösh, Early Cretaceous, Baykhangor Mongolia
Abstract A new theropod dinosaur, Shanag ashile, from the Early Cretaceous Öösh deposits of Mongolia is described here. The new specimen (IGM 100/1119) comprises a well-preserved right maxilla,Expand
A bizarre Cretaceous theropod dinosaur from Patagonia and the evolution of Gondwanan dromaeosaurids
TLDR
The new discovery amplifies the range of morphological disparity among unenlagiines, demonstrating that by the end of the Cretaceous this clade included large, short-armed forms alongside crow-sized, long-armed, possibly flying representatives. Expand
A New Leptoceratopsid (Ornithischia: Ceratopsia) from the Upper Cretaceous of Shandong, China and Its Implications for Neoceratopsian Evolution
TLDR
The discovery of Zhuchengceratops increases both the taxonomic diversity and the morphological disparity of the Leptocer atopsidae, providing further support for the hypothesis that this clade represents a successful radiation of horned dinosaurs in parallel with the Ceratopsidae in the Late Cretaceous.

The Osteology of Balaur bondoc, an Island-Dwelling Dromaeosaurid (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Late Cretaceous of Romania
ABSTRACT The Haţeg Island fauna of the terminal Late Cretaceous (ca. 71–65 million years ago) of Romania is one of the most unusual dinosaur assemblages in the global fossil record. It has long beenExpand
The Anatomy and Systematics of Colepiocephale lambei (Dinosauria: Pachycephalosauridae)
TLDR
Re-evaluation of the morphology of C. lambei based on all known material indicates that the posteromedial extension of the parietal is broken off at its base in every specimen, and what was interpreted as the posterior margin of the dome actually is the anterior margins of large supratemporal fenestrae.
