  • Abstract There has been considerable debate about whether the controversial tyrannosauroid dinosaur ‘ Nanotyrannus lancensis ’ from the uppermost Cretaceous of North America is a valid taxon or a juvenile of the contemporaneous Tyrannosaurus rex . In a recent Cretaceous Research article, Schmerge and Rothschild (2016) brought a new piece of evidence to this discussion: the morphology of the dentary groove, a depression on the lateral surface of the dentary that houses neurovascular foramina… CONTINUE READING
