Oviraptorosauria is a clade of Cretaceous theropod dinosaurs of uncertain affinities within Maniraptoriformes. All pre− vious phylogenetic analyses placed oviraptorosaurs outside a close relationship to birds (Avialae), recognizing Dromaeo− sauridae or Troodontidae, or a clade containing these two taxa (Deinonychosauria), as sister taxon to birds. Here we pres− ent the results of a phylogenetic analysis using 195 characters scored for four outgroup and 13 maniraptoriform (ingroup) terminal taxa… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

A new look at the phylogeny of coelurosauria (Dlnosauria: Theropoda)
TLDR
The analysis results in wide phylogenetic separation between Caenagnathus (close to the base of Oviraptorosauria) and Chirostenotes (placed within a clade of crested oviraptorids), casting doubt on their synonymy.
Osteology of Khaan mckennai (Oviraptorosauria: Theropoda)
TLDR
The primary goal of this paper is to provide a relatively comprehensive descriptive morphology and illustrations for one member of Oviraptoridae, namely Khaan mckennai, with an emphasis on characters that can be used to establish a phylogenetic hypothesis for the taxon and group as a whole.
A New Large-Bodied Oviraptorosaurian Theropod Dinosaur from the Latest Cretaceous of Western North America
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicates that Anzu is most closely related to Caenagnathus collinsi, a taxon that is definitively known only from a mandible from the Campanian Dinosaur Park Formation of Alberta, and the problematic oviraptorosaurs Microvenator and Gigantoraptor are recovered as basal caenagnaths, as has previously been suggested.
A partial oviraptorosaur skeleton suggests low caenagnathid diversity in the Late Cretaceous Nemegt Formation of Mongolia
TLDR
In the absence of any positive evidence for two caenagnathid taxa in the Nemegt Formation, Nomingia gobiensis is best regarded as a junior synonym of Elmisaurus rarus.
A new baby oviraptorid dinosaur (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Upper Cretaceous Nemegt Formation of Mongolia
TLDR
Gobiraptor increases diversity of oviraptOrids in the Nemegt Formation and its presence confirms the successful adaptation of ovIRaptorids to a mesic environment.
Parallel evolution of theropod dinosaurs and birds

    Entomological Review
  • 2006
TLDR
The hypothesis of independent origin of Sauriurae and Ornithurae is substantiated; the former are considered to have evolved from theropods in the Jurassic, while the latter deviated from a basal archosauromorph group in the Late Triassic.
A NEW OVIRAPTOROSAUR (THEROPODA, MANIRAPTORA) FROM THE LATE CRETACEOUS (CAMPANIAN) OF UTAH
Abstract Recent field expeditions to Upper Cretaceous deposits within Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, southern Utah, have revealed a diverse dinosaurian fauna that includes a previously
A taxonomic and phylogenetic re-evaluation of Therizinosauria (Dinosauria: Maniraptora)
TLDR
Time calibration of ingroup relationships indicates a pre-Turonian dispersal event is needed to account for the presence of therizinosaurids in the Late Cretaceous of North America and Asia; this conclusion supports previous hypotheses of a Laurasian faunal interchange event during the Albian.
ORNITHOMIMIDS FROM THE NEMEGT FORMATION OF MONGOLIA
TLDR
Two ornithornimids (Gallimimus bullatus and Anserimimus planinychus) and an enigmatic omithomimid from the Nemegt Formation of Mongolia are reviewed and preliminary phylogenetic analyses are tested based on three large data matrices of Theropoda.
A Review of Dromaeosaurid Systematics and Paravian Phylogeny
TLDR
This study provides the most detailed and comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of paravians to date in order to explore the phylogenetic history of dromaeosaurid taxa and reviews and revises the membership of DromaeOSauridae and provides an apomorphy-based diagnosis for all valid taxa.
