Structure of the manus and pes has long been a source of confusion in ankylosaurs, owing to the imperfect preservation or complete lack of these parts of the skeletons in most specimens, and the fact that many species appear to have undergone a reduction in numbers of digits and phalanges. New specimens of Pinacosaurus from Alag Teeg in Mongolia confirm that the phalangeal formula of the manus is 2-3-3-3-2. However, there are only three toes in the pes, which has a phalangeal formula of X-3-3/4… 
Postcrania of juvenile Pinacosaurus grangeri (Ornithischia: Ankylosauria) from the Upper Cretaceous Alagteeg Formation, Alag Teeg, Mongolia: implications for ontogenetic allometry in ankylosaurs
Abstract. The ankylosaurine Pinacosaurus is one of the best known ankylosaur to date in terms of the number and preservational quality of specimens. Juvenile to sub-adult postcrania collected by
A New Basal Ankylosaurid (Dinosauria: Ornithischia) from the Lower Cretaceous Jiufotang Formation of Liaoning Province, China
TLDR
Chuanqilong chaoyangensis represents the fourth ankylosaurid species reported from the Cretaceous of Liaoning, China, suggesting a relatively high diversity in Cret Jurassic Liaoning.
A new ankylosaurid skeleton from the Upper Cretaceous Baruungoyot Formation of Mongolia: its implications for ankylosaurid postcranial evolution
A new articulated postcranial specimen of an indeterminate ankylosaurid dinosaur from the Upper Cretaceous (middle-upper Campanian) Baruungoyot Formation from Hermiin Tsav, southern Gobi Desert,
The first oviraptorosaur (Dinosauria: Theropoda) bonebed: evidence of gregarious behaviour in a maniraptoran theropod
TLDR
The Avimimus bonebed is the first evidence of gregarious behaviour in oviraptorosaurs, and highlights a potential trend of increasing gregiousness in dinosaurs towards the end of the Mesozoic.
Systematics, phylogeny and palaeobiogeography of the ankylosaurid dinosaurs
TLDR
The revised phylogenetic analysis resulted in a monophyletic Ankylosauridae consisting of Ahshislepelta, Aletopelta, Gastonia, Gobisaurus, Liaoningosaurus, Shamosaurus and a suite of derived ankylosaurusids (Ankylosurinae).
A new southern Laramidian ankylosaurid, Akainacephalus johnsoni gen. et sp. nov., from the upper Campanian Kaiparowits Formation of southern Utah, USA
TLDR
Preserved material includes a complete skull, much of the vertebral column, including a complete tail club, a nearly complete synsacrum, several fore- and hind limb elements, and a suite of postcranial osteoderms, making Akainacephalus johnsoni the most complete ankylosaurid from the Late Cretaceous of southern Laramidia.
Pentadactyl ankylosaurian manus tracks from the Lower Cretaceous of Galve (Teruel, Spain): first occurrence of Tetrapodosaurus in the Iberian Peninsula
AbstractIntroductionThis work is a detailed description of ankylosaurian natural casts found in Galve (Teruel, Spain), with the identification and classification of the major dynamic and static
Bizarre tail weaponry in a transitional ankylosaur from subantarctic Chile
Armoured dinosaurs are well known for forms that evolved specialized tail weapons: paired tail spikes in stegosaurs, and heavy tail clubs in advanced ankylosaurs1. Armoured dinosaurs from southern

TLDR
It is possible that the fragmentary nature of the holotype of Euoplocephalus leads to the inference that the diversity of Late Cretaceous North American ankylosaurids is lower than it actually is, and it might be necessary to look beyond traditional cranial characters in order to accurately appraise the number and nature of various ankylassaurid taxa.

TLDR
The occurrence of a juvenile ankylosaur from the Upper Cretaceous locality Ukhaa Tolgod in southern Mongolia is reported, indicating that extensive morphological variability exists in the narial anatomy of P. grangeri.
MORPHOLOGICAL VARIATION IN THE LIMBS OF TARICHA GRANULOSA (CAUDATA: SALAMANDRIDAE): EVOLUTIONARY AND PHYLOGENETIC IMPLICATIONS
TLDR
Variation in the limb skeleton was studied in a large sample of adult newts (Taricha granulosa) from a single population in central California, revealing the potential of the generative system and suggesting the existence of limited domains of phenotypic expression.
Lesothosaurus, “Fabrosaurids,” and the early evolution of Ornithischia
TLDR
New materials of Lesothosaurus diagnosticus permit a detailed understanding of one of the earliest and most primitive ornithischians and suggests long-axis rotation of the mandibular rami during mastication.
Patterns of variation in the phalangeal formulae of land tortoises (Testudinidae): developmental constraint, size, and phylogenetic history.
TLDR
It is hypothesize that epigenetic processes, and not simply adaptation, played a major role in the evolution of the variation in phalangeal formulae in tortoises.
