Hindlimb Osteology and Distribution of Basal Dinosauromorphs from the Late Triassic of North America

  title={Hindlimb Osteology and Distribution of Basal Dinosauromorphs from the Late Triassic of North America},
  author={Sterling J. Nesbitt and Randall B. Irmis and William G Parker and Nathan D. Smith and Alan H. Turner and Timothy Rowe},
The recent discovery of early dinosauromorphs from North America demonstrates that they were contemporaries with dinosaurs and other basal archosaurs during a substantial portion of the Late Triassic Period. Hindlimb material (femora, tibiae, a fibula, astragalocalcanea, and phalanges) of Dromomeron romeri, a non-dinosauriform dinosauromorph from the Petrified Forest Member of the Chinle Formation from north-central New Mexico, is described. A new species of Dromomeron from the lower portion of… CONTINUE READING
