The Early Cretaceous vertebrate fauna from the bauxite deposit of Cornet Lens 204, Romania comprises dinosaurs, pterosaurs and possibly birds. Among dinosaurs, ornithopods are over-represented, but rare ankylosaurs and theropods were reported as well. Iguanodontid dinosaurs are described on the bases of distal femur, metacarpals, metatarsals and ungual phalanges of the pes. The majority of the Iguanodontidae material from Cornet can be identified as Iguanodon sp., and only for few of them… Expand
"Megalosaurus cf. superbus" from southeastern Romania: the oldest known Cretaceous carcharodontosaurid (Dinosauria: Theropoda) and its implications for earliest Cretaceous Europe-Gondwana connections
Abstract Some of the best records of continental vertebrates from the Cretaceous of Europe come from Romania, particularly two well-known occurrences of dwarfed and morphologically aberrant dinosaursExpand

Early Cretaceous (Berriasian) birds and pterosaurs from the Cornet bauxite mine, Romania
TLDR
Re-examination of collections in Oradea confirms the presence of both birds and pterosaurs in the Cornet bauxite: although the fragmentary bird remains are mostly indeterminate, one record of a hesperornithiform is confirmed. Expand

On Asian ornithopods (Dinosauria: Ornithischia). 3. A new species of iguanodontid dinosaur
TLDR
The anatomy of this new ornithopod is described; it shows a number of similarities to the known species ofIguanodon, but also demonstrates features which are in some instances unique to this taxon, while others seem to be either convergent upon, or transformational with respect to, the more derived hadrosaurid Ornithopods of the Late Cretaceous.
