Troodontidae is a clade of small-bodied theropod dinosaurs. A new troodontid, Gobivenator mongoliensis gen. et sp. nov., is described based on the most complete skeleton of a Late Cretaceous member of this clade presently known, from the Campanian Djadokhta Formation in the central Gobi Desert. G. mongoliensis is different from other troodontids in possessing a pointed anterior end of the fused parietal and a fossa on the surangular in front of the posterior surangular foramen. The skull was… 
Osteology of a New Late Cretaceous Troodontid Specimen from Ukhaa Tolgod, Ömnögovi Aimag, Mongolia
ABSTRACT A new troodontid dinosaur, Almas ukhaa, from the Late Cretaceous deposits of the Djadokhta Formation at Ukhaa Tolgod, Mongolia, is described here. The holotype specimen (IGM 100/1323)
Cranial morphology of Sinovenator changii (Theropoda: Troodontidae) on the new material from the Yixian Formation of western Liaoning, China
TLDR
The new observation confirms that the braincase of Sinovenator is not as primitive as previously suggested, although it still shows an intermediate state between derived troodontids and non-troodontid paravians in having an initial stage of the subotic recess and the otosphenoidal crest.
New material of a troodontid theropod (Dinosauria: Saurischia) from the Lower Cretaceous of Mongolia
TLDR
The present finding suggests that further exploration of the Lower Cretaceous in the Gobi Basin may still provide much new information on the theropod fauna in this region.
A New Troodontid Dinosaur from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation of Liaoning Province, China
A new troodontid dinosaur, Daliansaurus liaoningensis gen. et sp. nov., is erected based on a nearly complete specimen from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation of Beipiao City, Liaoning Province,
Troodontids (Theropoda) from the Dinosaur Park Formation, Alberta, with a description of a unique new taxon: implications for deinonychosaur diversity in North America
Troodontids are known from Asia and North America, with the most complete specimens from the Jurassic of China and the Cretaceous of Mongolia. North American troodontids are poorly known, and
Frontal bones of non-avian theropod dinosaurs from the Upper Cretaceous (Santonian–?Campanian) Bostobe Formation of the northeastern Aral Sea region, Kazakhstan
Three theropod taxa have been identified based on isolated frontal bones from the Santonian–?Campanian Bostobe Formation at the Shakh-Shakh locality, in the northeastern Aral Sea region of
The phylogenetic affinities and morphological peculiarities of the bird-like dinosaur Borogovia gracilicrus from the Upper Cretaceous of Mongolia
TLDR
The lack of a falciform ungual, and the distinctive morphology of the second toe in B. gracilicrus are interpreted as a derived specialization among Troodontidae and not as retention of the plesiomorphic condition of non-paravian theropods.
A Small-Bodied Troodontid (Dinosauria, Theropoda) from the Upper Cretaceous Wulansuhai Formation of Inner Mongolia, China
TLDR
A new small-bodied troodontid recovered from the Upper Cretaceous Wulansuhai Formation, Suhongtu, Inner Mongolia, China, is described, and the completely fused neurocentral junctions indicate that a skeletally mature individual of the same species of LH PV39 would be smaller than Philovenator and comparable in body size to a skeletal matureindividual of Almas.

A Short-Armed Troodontid Dinosaur from the Upper Cretaceous of Inner Mongolia and Its Implications for Troodontid Evolution
TLDR
The discovery of Linhevenator suggests that derived troodontids have independently evolved a highly specialized pedal digit II and have significantly shortened the forelimb over the course of their evolution.
A New Troodontid (Theropoda: Troodontidae) from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation of Western Liaoning, China
TLDR
A specimen collected from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation of western Liaoning, China, represents a new genus and species of troodontid theropod, indicating a rapid evolution at the base of the Troodontidae.
A New Troodontid (Theropoda: Troodontidae) from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation of Western Liaoning, China
TLDR
A specimen collected from the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation of western Liaoning, China, represents a new genus and species of troodontid theropod, indicating a rapid evolution at the base of the Troodontidae.
A New Dromaeosaurid Theropod from Ukhaa Tolgod (Ömnögov, Mongolia)
TLDR
A new dromaeosaurid theropod from the Upper Cretaceous Djadokhta Formation of Ukhaa Tolgod, Mongolia is described, with a well-preserved skull and cervical series and a jugal–squamosal contact that excludes the postorbital from the margin of the infratemporal fenestra.
The Perinate Skull of Byronosaurus (Troodontidae) with Observations on the Cranial Ontogeny of Paravian Theropods
TLDR
The skulls of two perinate paravians from Ukhaa Tolgod, Djadoktha Formation, Mongolia, provide the first look at the morphology of such important anatomical regions as the rostrum, palate, and braincase at or near the onset of postnatal development in a nonavian paravian coelurosaur.
A New Troodontid Theropod from the Late Cretaceous of Central China, and the Radiation of Asian Troodontids
A new troodontid dinosaur, Xixiasaurus henanensis gen. et sp. nov., from the Upper Cretaceous Majiacun Formation of the Xixia Basin, Henan Province, is erected, based on a partial skull. It is
A New Troodontid Theropod, Talos sampsoni gen. et sp. nov., from the Upper Cretaceous Western Interior Basin of North America
TLDR
The presence of a distinct troodontid taxon in the Kaiparowits Formation supports the hypothesis that late Campanian dinosaurs of the Western Interior Basin exhibited restricted geographic ranges and suggests that the taxonomic diversity of Late Cretaceous troodonids from North America is currently underestimated.
The tenth skeletal specimen of Archaeopteryx
TLDR
The tenth skeletal specimen of the Upper Jurassic Archaeopterygidae is described and demonstrates the presence of a hyperextendible second toe in archaeopteryx, supporting previous assumptions that Archaeoperyx was only facultatively arboreal.
New observations on the skull of Archaeopteryx

  • Biology
    Paläontologische Zeitschrift
  • 2013
TLDR
A new reconstruction of the skulls of Archaeopteryx is presented, making the skull of this taxon even more theropod-like than previously recognized, and casting serious doubt on claims that an avian-style cranial kinesis was present in thisTaxon.
A pre-Archaeopteryx troodontid theropod from China with long feathers on the metatarsus
TLDR
The extensive feathering of this specimen, particularly the attachment of long pennaceous feathers to the pes, sheds new light on the early evolution of feathers and demonstrates the complex distribution of skeletal and integumentary features close to the dinosaur–bird transition.
