Synopsis The most comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the theropod clade Coelurosauria to date, is presented here, with 85 coelurosaurian ingroups and 360 characters, using Allosaurus and Sinraptoras outgroups. The strict consensus tree is highly resolved and has the following topology: Tyrannosauroidea + (Compsognathidae + (Arctometatarsalia + (Ornitholestes + (Therizinosauroidea + (Alvarezsauridae + (Oviraptorosauria + (Avialae + (Troodontidae + Dromaeosauridae)))))))). The analysis places… Expand
Evolution of the carnivorous dinosaurs during the Cretaceous: The evidence from Patagonia
Patagonia has yielded the most comprehensive fossil record of Cretaceous theropods from Gondwana, consisting of 31 nominal species belonging to singleton taxa and six families: Abelisauridae,Expand
A taxonomic and phylogenetic re-evaluation of Therizinosauria (Dinosauria: Maniraptora)
TLDR
Time calibration of ingroup relationships indicates a pre-Turonian dispersal event is needed to account for the presence of therizinosaurids in the Late Cretaceous of North America and Asia; this conclusion supports previous hypotheses of a Laurasian faunal interchange event during the Albian. Expand
The phylogenetic affinities of the bizarre Late Cretaceous Romanian theropod Balaur bondoc (Dinosauria, Maniraptora): dromaeosaurid or flightless bird?
TLDR
The reinterpretation of Balaur implies that a superficially dromaeosaurid-like taxon represents the enlarged, terrestrialised descendant of smaller and probably volant ancestors, and its phylogenetic placement within Avialae is not biased by character weighting. Expand
Juvenile specimen of Megaraptor (Dinosauria, Theropoda) sheds light about tyrannosauroid radiation
Megaraptorids are a group of predatory dinosaurs that inhabited Gondwana from Cenomanian to Santonian times (Late Cretaceous). Phylogenetic relationships of megaraptorids have been matter of recentExpand
A New Large-Bodied Oviraptorosaurian Theropod Dinosaur from the Latest Cretaceous of Western North America
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicates that Anzu is most closely related to Caenagnathus collinsi, a taxon that is definitively known only from a mandible from the Campanian Dinosaur Park Formation of Alberta, and the problematic oviraptorosaurs Microvenator and Gigantoraptor are recovered as basal caenagnaths, as has previously been suggested. Expand
A reanalysis of Murusraptor barrosaensis Coria & Currie (2016) affords new evidence about the phylogenetical relationships of Megaraptora
TLDR
The current study lends further support to the hypothesis that megaraptorans are basal members of Coelurosauria ( supported by 20 synapomophies), with strongest affiliation with Tyrannosauroidea (supported by >20 synapomorphies). Expand
New Dromaeosaurids (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Lower Cretaceous of Utah, and the Evolution of the Dromaeosaurid Tail
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis places Y. doellingi in a clade with Utahraptor, Achillobator, and Dromaeosaurus and traces changes in character states of the tail across Coelurosauria to elucidate the evolution of the dromaeosaurid tail. Expand
A juvenile specimen of a new coelurosaur (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Middle–Late Jurassic Shishugou Formation of Xinjiang, People's Republic of China
TLDR
It is shown that the phylogenetic position of Aorun as a member of Coelurosauria is robust to the exclusion of characters known to change during theropod ontogeny. Expand
European ornithomimosaurs (Dinosauria, Theropoda): an undetected record
Early Cretaceous ornithomimosaurian theropod dinosaurs have been reported from various localities in Asia, whereas they remain poorly represented and extremely rare in North America, Africa andExpand
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

The phylogenetic position of the Tyrannosauridae; implications for theropod systematics
TLDR
The inclusion of the Tyrannosauridae within Maniraptora suggests a major adaptive radiation of coelurosaurs within Cretaceous Asiamerica comparable to contemporaneous radiations in various herbivorous dinosaurian clades. Expand

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis using 195 characters scored for four outgroup and 13 maniraptoriform (ingroup) terminal taxa, including new data on ovirptorids places Oviraptorosauria within Avialae, in a sister−group relationship with Confuciusornis. Expand

New information on the anatomy and relationships of Dromaeosaurus albertensis (Dinosauria: Theropoda)
TLDR
Repreparation and restudy of the holotype of Dromaeosaurus albertensis has produced new anatomical information useful for evaluating the relationships of dromaeosaurids. Expand

A primitive therizinosauroid dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous of Utah
TLDR
A new, primitive therizinosauroid is described from an extensive paucispecific bonebed at the base of the Cedar Mountain Formation of east-central Utah, indicating that this species documents the earliest known stage in the poorly understood transition from carnivory to herbivory within Therizinosauroidea.
