Abstract. Utahraptor is the largest member of the dinosaur family DromaeosauriDae and represents one of the most remarkable discoveries in recent decades. In the original description, the specific epithet ostrommaysi was used for naming the species in honor of two different persons, but in subsequent years the spelling ostrommaysorum was often used without comment or explanation. In this paper, we review the historical uses of the specific epithet of Utahraptor and make clarifications on the…

A NEW GENUS OF DROMAEOSAURIDAE (DINOSAURIA, THEROPODA) FROM THE UPPER CRETACEOUS OF FRANCE
Dromaeosaurid dinosaur remains are extremely rare in Europe and hitherto provide very poor taxonomic information. They are known in the Lower Maastrichtian of Portugal (Antunes and Sigogneau, 1992),
New Dromaeosaurids (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Lower Cretaceous of Utah, and the Evolution of the Dromaeosaurid Tail
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis places Y. doellingi in a clade with Utahraptor, Achillobator, and Dromaeosaurus and traces changes in character states of the tail across Coelurosauria to elucidate the evolution of the dromaeosaurid tail.
Evolution of Teeth and Quadrate in Non-avian Theropoda (Dinosauria: Saurischia), with the Description of Torvosaurus Remains from Portugal
TLDR
A brief historical perspective of theropod discoveries and classification is presented, as well as an overview on the current systematics of non-avian theropods.
Genitives of species and subspecies nomina derived from personal names should not be emended
TLDR
A rewording of a few Articles of the Code is proposed to remedy some of the ambiguities pointed to by this analysis and to address problems related to homonymy in nomina based on personal names.
THE SMALL THEROPOD DINOSAURS TUGULUSAURUS AND PHAEDROLOSAURUS FROM THE EARLY CRETACEOUS OF XINJIANG, CHINA

Morphological Variations within the Ontogeny of Deinonychus antirrhopus (Theropoda, Dromaeosauridae)
TLDR
The hypothesis that juveniles of this taxon possessed some form of flight capability is supported and the known pattern of variable, informative, ontogenetic characters in MCZ 8791 are compared to a similar pattern of morphological characters in the sub-adult dromaeosaurid specimen Bambiraptor feinbergorum.
A new dromaeosaurid (Dinosauria: Theropoda) with Asian affinities from the latest Cretaceous of North America
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis suggests Acheroraptor is a velociraptorine that is more closely related to Asian dromaeosaurids, including Tsaagan and Velocirptor, than it is to Dromaeosaurus, Saurornitholestes, or any other taxon from North America.
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.
New Patagonian Cretaceous theropod sheds light about the early radiation of Coelurosauria
TLDR
Bicentenaria amplifies the array of basal coelurosaurs that inhabited Gondwana during the Cretaceous, also including compsognathids, Aniksosaurus and Santanaraptor, and reveals the importance of the new taxon in the understanding of the early diversification of Coelurosauria.
