A new theropod (Pycnonemosaurus nevesi gen.nov., sp.nov.) is described, based on five incomplete teeth, parts of seven caudal vertebrae, a right pubis (lacking the proximal part), a right tibia, and the distal articulation of the right fibula. The specimen (DGM 859-R) was found in a red conglomeratic sandstone at the locality Fazenda Roncador (Mato Grosso), which is referred to the Upper Cretaceous Bauru Group. Pycnonemosaurus nevesi is classified in the Abelisauria because of the expanded… 

New record of abelisauroid theropods from the Bauru Group (Upper Cretaceous), São Paulo State, Brazil

Isolated bones of abelisauroid theropods from the Bauru Group (Late Cretaceous, Brazil), are described. They correspond to three individuals represented by fused ischia and part of the ilium, a

A new dinosaur (Theropoda, Spinosauridae) from the Cretaceous (Cenomanian) Alcântara Formation, Cajual Island, Brazil.

Oxalaia quilombensis appears to be more closely related to the spinosaurids found in North Africa than to the Brazilian members of this clade and thus further increases the diversity of these enigmatic predatory dinosaurs in this country.

ON A SEQUENCE OF SACROCAUDAL THEROPOD DINOSAUR VERTEBRAE FROM THE LOWER CRETACEOUS SANTANA FORMATION

The lack of paired processes on the chevrons suggest that within Spinosauroidea MN 4743-V is a member of the Spinosauridae, congruent with previous findings of spinosaurids in the Romualdo Member.

On a theropod scapula (Upper Cretaceous) from the Marília Formation, Bauru Group, Brazil

The record of theropod dinosaurs in Brazil is very scarce. One of the most promising lithostratigraphic units for those reptiles is the Bauru Group. The dinosaur remains found in this unit are mainly

A new Abelisauridae (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from São José do Rio Preto Formation, Upper Cretaceous of Brazil and comments on the Bauru Group fauna

ABSTRACT Abelisaurid theropods are well-know from the Cretaceous of several parts of the Southern Hemisphere, including South America, Madagascar, and Africa, but also in India and Europe.

There are no records of ornithischian dinosaurs in the country what is at least partially explainable by the lack of continuous vertebrate fossil collecting program in the nation.
