Abstract A new genus and species of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur from the Wessex Formation (Early Cretaceous, Barremian) of the Isle of Wight, England, is described and named. Distinctive characters of the premaxilla, its dentition, maxilla and nasals allow it to be diagnosed. The teeth in the premaxilla are D-shaped in cross-section and the nasals are fused. The hands are elongate and slender and the hindlimbs are gracile. Lack of element fusion elsewhere in the skeleton suggests that it…

Redescription of the holotype of Dryptosaurus aquilunguis (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Upper Cretaceous of New Jersey
TLDR
Reexamination of the specimen indicates the presence of unique serrations on the maxillary teeth, a large ungual/humeral ratio, the probable presence of a high, centrally located ascending process on the astragalus, and a non-arctometatarsal, which indicate that Dryptosaurus is a unique theropod and should be placed in its own family, Dryptosauridae.
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.

Dinosaur Systematics: Theropod teeth from the Judith River Formation of southern Alberta, Canada
TLDR
The identification of theropod teeth has the potential of refining stratigraphic determinations, extending temporal and geographic ranges, indicating relationships, and allowing paleoecological statements to be made on the relative diversity or abundance of certain taxa.
