A fairly well-preserved specimen of a new primitive mammal,Repenomamus robustus gen. et sp. nov., has been described from the Yixian Formation (Lower Cretaceous), western Liaoning, China. This animal has several derived characteristics, such as well-developed dentary/squamosal articulation, reduced number of tooth, differentiation of premolars and molars in postcanine teeth, presence of a dorsal process of the premaxilla that is not in contact with the nasal, closed medial wall of the orbit… Expand
A new species ofGobiconodon (Triconodonta, Mammalia) and its implication for the age of Jehol Biota
TLDR
The presence of Gobiconodon in Jehol Biota makes it possible to correlate Je hol Biota with faunas in eastern Asia and North America, and suggests the age of the Yixian Formation to be Early Cretaceous. Expand
A new eutriconodont mammal from the early Cretaceous Jehol Biota of Liaoning, China
A new genus and species of eutriconodont mammal, Chaoyangodens lii gen. et sp. nov., from the Dawangzhangzi bed of Yixian Formation, Lingyuan, Liaoning, is reported. The new species has a toothExpand
A basal troodontid from the Early Cretaceous of China
TLDR
The discovery of Sinovenator and the examination of character distributions along the maniraptoran lineage indicate that principal structural modifications toward avians were acquired in the early stages of manIRaptoran evolution. Expand

New Study on Dental and Skeletal Features of the Cretaceous “Symmetrodontan” Mammal Zhangheotherium
TLDR
A new partial skeleton of the Cretaceous “symmetrodontan” mammal Zhangheotherium quinquecuspedens from the Yixian Formation of Liaoning, China has shed light on the dental and skeletal features of this taxon, suggesting that the superposition of astragalus and calcaneus evolved in parallel in metatherians and eutherians.

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
An exceptionally preserved Lower Cretaceous ecosystem
TLDR
Findings include feathered theropod dinosaurs and early birds, which provide additional, indisputable support for the dinosaurian ancestry of birds, and much new evidence on the evolution of feathers and flight. Expand
The remarkable fossils from the Early Cretaceous Jehol Biota of China and how they have changed our knowledge of Mesozoic life
