Theropod dinosaurs form a highly diversified clade, and their teeth are some of the most common components of the Mesozoic dinosaur fossil record. This is the case in the Lourinhã Formation (Late Jurassic, Kimmeridgian-Tithonian) of Portugal, where theropod teeth are particularly abundant and diverse. Four isolated theropod teeth are here described and identified based on morphometric and anatomical data. They are included in a cladistic analysis performed on a data matrix of 141 dentition… 

Isolated theropod teeth associated with a sauropod skeleton from the Late Cretaceous Allen Formation of Río Negro, Patagonia, Argentina

The discovery of theropod shed teeth associated with sauropod remains is relatively common in Cretaceous deposits of Patagonia. However, only a handful of studies have thoroughly explored the

New theropod dinosaur teeth from the Middle Jurassic of the Isle of Skye, Scotland

The Middle Jurassic is a largely mysterious interval in dinosaur evolution, as few fossils of this age are known worldwide. In recent years, the Isle of Skye has yielded a substantial record of

A juvenile allosauroid theropod (Dinosauria, Saurischia) from the Upper Jurassic of Portugal

Abstract A new specimen of a theropod dinosaur found in Upper Jurassic sedimentary levels of the Lusitanian Basin (Portugal) is described. The specimen includes axial (cervical, dorsal, and caudal

Isolated Theropod Teeth from the Middle Jurassic of Niger and the Early Dental Evolution of Spinosauridae

TLDR
Four isolated theropod teeth from the ?Bathonian “Argiles de l'Irhazer” in Niger are described and it is suggested that three teeth share affinities with those of Megalosauridae and Allosauridae, belonging most likely to the former and the fourth tooth might be from a member of the stem group Spinosauridae.

The Dentition of Megalosaurid Theropods

TLDR
A discriminant analysis performed on a dataset of numerical data collected on the teeth of 62 theropod taxa reveals that megalosaurid teeth are hardly distinguishable from other theropid clades with ziphodont dentition.

Multivariate Analyses of Small Theropod Dinosaur Teeth and Implications for Paleoecological Turnover through Time

TLDR
The hypothesis that small theropod taxa, like other dinosaurs in the Late Cretaceous, tend to be exclusive to discrete host formations is supported.

A Ceratosaurid (Dinosauria, Theropoda) From the Late Jurassic–Early Cretaceous Of Uruguay

Abstract Several teeth with ceratosaurid affinities from the Tacuarembó Formation (Kimmeridgian–Hautevirian) of Uruguay (South America) are reported herein. The most diagnostic specimen is a small

Dental morphology and variation in theropod dinosaurs: implications for the taxonomic identification of isolated teeth.

TLDR
A quantitative methodology designed to provide defensible identifications of isolated teeth using Tyrannosaurus as a comparison taxon and results indicate that expanding the standard should facilitate the identification of numerous types of isolated theropod teeth.

Diversity and variation of theropod dinosaur teeth from the uppermost Santonian Milk River Formation (Upper Cretaceous), Alberta: a quantitative method supporting identification of the oldest dinosaur tooth assemblage in Canada

The Santonian Deadhorse Coulee Member of the Milk River Formation preserves the oldest dinosaur body fossils found in Alberta. However, vertebrate remains consist almost exclusively of isolated

A description of Megalosaurus bucklandii (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Bathonian of the UK and the relationships of Middle Jurassic theropods

TLDR
Megalosaurus bucklandii (Dinosauria: Theropoda), the oldest named dinosaur taxon, from the Bathonian of England, is a valid taxon diagnosed by a unique character combination of the lectotype dentary, and a new phylogenetic analysis focuses on basal tetanurans, revealing several new results.

DENTAL MORPHOLOGY AND VARIATION IN MAJUNGASAURUS CRENATISSIMUS (THEROPODA: ABELISAURIDAE) FROM THE LATE CRETACEOUS OF MADAGASCAR

TLDR
Documentation of the intra-individual and intraspecific variation in Majungasaurus tooth anatomy provides a standard against which other abelisaurids can be compared and provides a suite of dental features that potentially can be used to assist in evaluation of the phylogenetic position of Majung asaurus among abelISaurids and Abelisauridae among theropods.

A new specimen of the theropod dinosaur Baryonyx from the early Cretaceous of Portugal and taxonomic validity of Suchosaurus

TLDR
It is reported that new cranial and postcranial material of the theropod dinosaur Baryonyx walkeri found in the Barremian (Papo Seco Formation) of Portugal is reported, which represents the most complete spinosaurid yet discovered in the Iberian Peninsula and themost complete dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous of Portugal.

The Phylogeny of Ceratosauria (Dinosauria: Theropoda)

TLDR
A new cladistic analysis of Ceratosauria from the Late Jurassic‐Late Cretaceous of North and South America, Europe, Africa, India and Madagascar suggests that Elaphrosaurus and its relatives are the most basal ceratosaurs, followed by Ceratosaurus and Noasauridae + Abelisauridae (= Abelisauroidea).
