KurzfassungIsolierte Zähne theropoder Dinosaurier aus dem Oberen Jura der Kohlengrube Guimarota (bei Leiria, Portugal) werden beschrieben und abgebildet. Die häufigsten Zahnfunde ähneln morphologisch den Bezahnungen der oberjurassischen TheropodenArchaeopteryx undCompsognathus. Ein Morphotyp deutet auf das Vorhandensein eines Allosauriden hin. Sechs weitere Morphotypen von Theropoden-Zähnen zeigen große Ähnlichkeiten mit kreidezeitlichen Formen, wie Dromaeosauriden, Troodontiden… 

Evidence of theropod dinosaurs from a Lower Cretaceous karst filling in the northern Sauerland (Rhenish Massif, Germany)

Theropod dinosaur teeth from a Lower Cretaceous karst filling in Devonian reef limestone (Massenkalk) located near the village of Balve on the northern margin of the Rhenish Massif, Germany, are

Abelisauridae (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Late Jurassic of Portugal and dentition-based phylogeny as a contribution for the identification of isolated theropod teeth.

Although dental characters do not reliably indicate relationships among higher clades of theropods, they demonstrate interesting patterns of homoplasy suggesting dietary convergence in alvarezsauroids, therizinosaurs and troodontids, suggesting a possible radiation of Abelisauridae in Europe well before the Upper Cretaceous.

Theropod Teeth from the Middle-Upper Jurassic Shishugou Formation of Northwest Xinjiang, China

The probable deinonychosaurian teeth in this sample are among the oldest fossils known for this clade, and highlight the diversity of coelurosaurs in the Shishugou Formation.

Pterosaur and dinosaur remains from the Middle Jurassic Balabansai Svita in the northern Fergana Depression, Kyrgyzstan (Central Asia)

Abstract: Isolated pterosaur and dinosaur teeth and a sauropod metatarsal I and manual phalanx V‐1 from the Middle Jurassic (Callovian) Balabansai Svita in the northern Fergana Valley, Kyrgyzstan,

Theropod teeth from the basalmost Cretaceous of Anoual (Morocco) and their palaeobiogeographical significance

Abstract The theropod teeth from the Berriasian (Early Cretaceous) site of Anoual (N Morocco) are described. The assemblage is important in that it comes from one of the very few dinosaur sites of

Additions to the Early Cretaceous dinosaur fauna of Transbaikalia, Eastern Russia

Eight dinosaur taxa are currently known from the Early Cretaceous (Barremian-Aptian) Murtoi Formation in the Lake Gusinoe Depression of western Transbaikalia: the theropod Richardoestesia sp.* and


Late Jurassic theropod dinosaurs have been known in Portugal since 1863 but only now are they being fully understood, with the recognition of genera such as Allosaurus, Aviatyrannis, Ceratosaurus,

Multivariate and Cladistic Analyses of Isolated Teeth Reveal Sympatry of Theropod Dinosaurs in the Late Jurassic of Northern Germany

The similarity of the northern German theropods with groups from contemporaneous localities suggests faunal exchange via land-connections in the Late Jurassic between Germany, Portugal and North America.



The phylogenetic position of the Tyrannosauridae: implications for theropod systematics

The inclusion of the Tyrannosauridae within Maniraptora suggests a major adaptive radiation of coelurosaurs within Cretaceous Asiamerica comparable to contemporaneous radiations in various herbivorous dinosaurian clades.

First record of the family Dromaeosauridae (Dinosauria: Theropoda) in the Cretaceous of Gondwana (Wadi Milk Formation, northern Sudan)

KurzfassungDie cenomane Wadi Milk Formation des Sudan lieferte eine reiche kontinentale Wirbeltierfauna. Neben Fragmenten von großen Theropoden verweisen disartikulierte Fußphalangen-Elemente und ein

Dinosaur Systematics: Theropod teeth from the Judith River Formation of southern Alberta, Canada

The identification of theropod teeth has the potential of refining stratigraphic determinations, extending temporal and geographic ranges, indicating relationships, and allowing paleoecological statements to be made on the relative diversity or abundance of certain taxa.

Bird-like characteristics of the jaws and teeth of troodontid theropods (Dinosauria, Saurischia)

A critical examination of all jaws and teeth attributed to Troodon, Stenonychosaurus, and Pectinodon concluded that Troodon is the senior synonym of these genera, and that the name Troodontidae has priority over Saurornithoididae.

The Upper Jurassic diapsid Lisboasaurus estesi - a maniraptoran theropod

Features of the dentition suggest that L. estesi belonged within the troodontid dinosaur-bird clade and, less certainly, within the Avialae (Archaeopteryx plus all later birds) and may be the earliest avialan.

Theropod teeth from the Judith River Formation (Upper Cretaceous) of south-central Montana

Theropod teeth are some of the most diagnostic fossils from dinosaur assemblages, with taxonomic utility to the genus or even species level. One hundred and twenty-nine teeth, representing five
