Species of plated dinosaur Stegosaurus (Morrison Formation, Late Jurassic) of western USA: new type species designation needed

Stegosaurus armatus Marsh 1877, based on a partial tail and a very large dermal plate from the Morrison Formation (Late Jurassic) of Morrison, Wyoming, USA, is a nomen dubium. Valid Morrison

Reassessment of a Historical Collection of Sauropod Dinosaurs from the Northern Morrison Formation of Wyoming, with Implications for Sauropod Biogeography

ABSTRACT The Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of the western United States preserves one of the best-known Mesozoic paleoecosystems worldwide. The formation crops out over an area from New Mexico

The Braincase Assigned to the Ornithopod Dinosaur Uteodon McDonald, 2011, Reassigned to Dryosaurus Marsh, 1894: Implications for Iguanodontian Morphology and Taxonomy

ABSTRACT The braincase from the Upper Jurassic (lower Tithonian) Morrison Formation of the Carnegie Quarry at Dinosaur National Monument (Utah), which was assigned to the ankylopollexian

The Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of western North America has yielded a number of specimens assigned to the ornithischian dinosaurs Stegosaurus and Camptosaurus, and many of these specimens come

Theropod teeth diversity from the Villar del Arzobispo Formation (Tithonian–Berriasian) at Riodeva (Teruel, Spain)

Riodeva sites (Villar del Arzobispo Fm) in Teruel, Spain, have revealed themselves as a window through which to gain a better understanding of the Iberian dinosaurs of the Jurassic–Cretaceous

The phylogenetic nomenclature of ornithischian dinosaurs

The nomenclature of ornithischian dinosaur clades is revised; 76 preexisting ornithischerian clade names are revisited, their recent and historical use is reviewed, and their phylogenetic definitions are formally established.

The Hand of Tenontosaurus Tilletti (Dinosauria, Ornithopoda)

Ornithopods are among the most common members of North America’s Cretaceous dinosaurian faunas, yet despite their excellent representation in existing collections, the anatomy of the manus remains

The skull and neck of a new flagellicaudatan sauropod from the Morrison Formation and its implication for the evolution and ontogeny of diplodocid dinosaurs

Dinheirosaurus and Supersaurus now represent the sister clade to Apatosaurus and Diplodocinae and therefore the most basal diplodOCid genera.

Dacentrurine stegosaurs (Dinosauria): A new specimen of Miragaia longicollum from the Late Jurassic of Portugal resolves taxonomical validity and shows the occurrence of the clade in North America

A largely complete specimen of M. longicollum is described, confirming this to be the first known dacentrurine stegosaur in America, coherent with the hypothesis of an ephemeral land bridge between North America and Iberia that allowed faunal exchange.

The Biogeography of Coelurosaurian Theropods and its Impact on their Evolutionary History

The results statistically favour the DIVALIKE+J and DEC+J models, supporting continental vicariance as an important factor in coelurosaurian evolution, and recognise the importance of Europe as a dispersal centre and gateway in the Early Cretaceous, as well as other vicarance events like those triggered by the disappearance of land-bridges.
