An incomplete cervical vertebra of a theropod dinosaur from the Lower Cretaceous of the Isle of Wight, England, first described by Seeley in 1888 and made the type of Thecocoelurus daviesi , shows features unique to the oviraptorosaur-therizinosauroid clade of coelurosaurian theropods. It differs from the cervical vertebrae of therizinosauroids and closely resembles those of the caenagnathid oviraptorosaur Chirostenotes . If this identification is correct, this specimen is, with the exception…

The historical taxonomy of the Lower Cretaceous theropods (Dinosauria) Calamospondylus and Aristosuchus from the Isle of Wight
TLDR
The historical taxonomy of the small theropod dinosaurs from the Wealden Group of England is confused and complex, and it has traditionally been thought that Calamospondylus oweni was renamed and redescribed as Poekilopleuron pusillus, a taxon later given its own genus, Aristosuchus.
A definitive allosauroid (Dinosauria; Theropoda) from the Lower Cretaceous of East Sussex

Abstract In contrast to the Barremian Wessex Formation on the Isle of Wight, the remains of small theropods are rare in the Berriasian–Valanginian Hastings Group of the English mainland. Both units
Osteology of Falcarius utahensis (Dinosauria: Theropoda): characterizing the anatomy of basal therizinosaurs
TLDR
Results of this study reveal a significant degree of morphological disparity between Falcarius utahensis and the evidently coeval primitive theriz Dinosaur Beipiaosaurus inexpectus and help characterize morphological transformations occurring in the therizinosaur lineage that are of phylogenetic significance, particularly with regard to the highly derived presacral axial column.
