Notes on the rising diversity of Iguanodont taxa, and Iguanodonts named after Darwin, Huxley, and evolutionary science

  title={Notes on the rising diversity of Iguanodont taxa, and Iguanodonts named after Darwin, Huxley, and evolutionary science},
  author={Gregory Paul},
The taxonomic diversity of previously published European iguanodonts is reviewed and analyzed. It is concluded that the diversity was very high, contrary to suggestions that many specimens can be referred to a limited number of genera and species. It is emphasized that specimens usually can be assigned to the same species only when sufficient overlapping material exists and they are stratigraphically similar in time within a given formation. The separation of Mantellisaurus atherfieldensis and… Expand

New systematic and phylogenetic data about the early Barremian Iguanodon galvensis (Ornithopoda: Iguanodontoidea) from Spain
A new phylogenetic hypothesis is proposed that resolves Iguanodon with the Valanginian Barilium dawsoni into a monophyletic clade (Iguanodontoidea), and can now be identified by three autapomorphies in the dentary, ischium and femur. Expand
New material and phylogenetic position of the basal iguanodont dinosaur Delapparentia turolensis from the Barremian (Early Cretaceous) of Spain
After first-hand examinations of the holotype, the phylogenetic position of this taxon has been analysed for the first time, and its diagnosis is emended. Expand
On the taxonomy and diversity of Wealden iguanodontian dinosaurs (Ornithischia: Ornithopoda)
The taxonomy of Wealden-aged iguanodontians is reviewed in the light of recent publications that indicate higher levels of taxonomic diversity existed compared to estimates from the recent past, and some inconsistency in the maintenance of standards associated with good taxonomic practice is suggested. Expand
A new hadrosauriform dinosaur from the Wessex Formation, Wealden Group (Early Cretaceous), of the Isle of Wight, southern England
A new genus and species of non-hadrosaurid hadrosauriform dinosaur, Brighstoneus simmondsi gen. et sp. nov., is described from the Lower Cretaceous Wessex Formation of the Isle of Wight. The newExpand
Dinosaurs and other vertebrates from the Papo-Seco Formation (Lower Cretaceous) of southern Portugal
New vertebrate remains reported from the Papo-Seco Formation (Lower Barremian, Lower Cretaceous) of Areias do Mastro, in Cabo Espichel, SW Portugal, south of Lisbon. The marine, lagoonal, andExpand


A revised taxonomy of the iguanodont dinosaur genera and species
A stratigraphic analysis and character census are combined with a character census that shows the European iguanodonts are markedly more morphologically divergent than other dinosaur genera, and some appear phylogenetically more derived than others. Expand
Early and “Middle” Cretaceous Iguanodonts in Time and Space
Recent discoveries of diverse iguanodonts throughout the Cedar Mountain Formation (Utah, USA) have led us to assess the global diversity of Early Cretaceous iguanodonts. The record in England is moreExpand
New Basal Iguanodonts from the Cedar Mountain Formation of Utah and the Evolution of Thumb-Spiked Dinosaurs
Iguanacolossus and Hippodraco add greatly to the knowledge of North American basal iguanodonts and prompt a new comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of basal iguanaodont relationships. Expand

The iguanodons of Bemissart (Belgium) are middle Barremian to earliest Aptian in age
The iguanodons of Bernissart (Belgium) have attracted considerable interest since their discovery in the nineteenth century and still remain a reference material. Until now they were relativelyExpand

I. Introduction. This very fine fossil was obtained from the débris of Wealden Shales, after a fall of the cliff near Atherfield (Isle of Wight). The complete skeleton was probably present when inExpand
A tall-spined ornithopod dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous of Salas de los Infantes (Burgos, Spain)
Abstract A tall-spined ornithopod dinosaur from the Pinilla de los Moros Formation (Upper Hauterivian-Lower Barremian) of Salas de los Infantes (Burgos, Spain) is described. The material consists ofExpand
A Reevaluation of Sexual Dimorphism in the Postcranium of the Chasmosaurine Ceratopsid Chasmosaurus belli (Dinosauria: Ornithischia)
The sexual dimorphism attributed to Chasmosaurus belli by Sternberg (1927) is revisited and reevaluated, and it is likely that the two specimens belong to separate species, C. belli and C. russelli, as evidenced by their distinct frill morphologies and by their stratigraphic segregation within the Dinosaur Park Formation of Alberta.

An Early Cretaceous lacustrine record: Organic matter and organic carbon isotopes at Bernissart (Mons Basin, Belgium)
Abstract The early Cretaceous Bernissart lake deposits (Mons Basin, Belgium) constitute an important historical site in the field of palaeontology. In this study, we focus on the organic matter (OM)Expand
