Heterodontosauridae is characterized by small, gracile bodies and a problematic phylogenetic position. Recent phylogenetic work indicates that it represents the most basal group of all well-known ornithischians. Previous heterodontosaurid records are mainly from the Early Jurassic period (205–190 million years ago) of Africa. Here we report a new heterodontosaurid, Tianyulong… CONTINUE READING
