Abstract The type material of the small theropod dinosaurs Tugulusaurus faciles and Phaedrolosaurus ilikensis from the Lower Cretaceous (?Valanginian–Albian) Lianmugin Formation of Xinjiang, north-western China, is reviewed. Although based on an incomplete and rather poorly preserved specimen, Tugulusaurus can be shown to be valid on the basis of strongly broadened caudal vertebrae with an anteriorly placed neural arch and a short and highly asymmetrical metacarpal I. Phaedrolosaurus, based on… 
A Theropod Dinosaur from the Late Jurassic Cañadón Calcáreo Formation of Central Patagonia, and the Evolution of the Theropod Tarsus
TLDR
The tarsus of P. fernandezorum shows an intermediate morphology between that of basal theropods and more derived tetanurans, and indicates that a separate ossification of the ascending process of the astragalus was present in this taxon, and provides evidence that the origin of the descending process and the a stragalar body from separate oSSifications was already present at the base of Averostra.
The theropod dinosaur Elaphrosaurus bambergi Janensch, 1920, from the Late Jurassic of Tendaguru, Tanzania
TLDR
Elaphrosaurus is placed within a dichotomous Noasauridae as part of a Jurassic subclade, here termed Elaphrosaurinae, that otherwise includes taxa from eastern Asia and underscores the long and complex evolutionary history of abelisauroids, which is still only beginning to be understood.
The first dinosaurs from the Early Cretaceous Hami Pterosaur Fauna, China
TLDR
Besides the pterosaur Hamipterus and one theropod tooth, these dinosaurs are the first vertebrates reported in this region, increasing the diversity of the fauna as well as the information on Chinese sauropods, further supporting a widespread diversification of somphospondylans during the Early Cretaceous of Asia.
A Reassessment of Kelmayisaurus petrolicus, a Large Theropod Dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous of China
The Early Cretaceous fossil record of large-bodied theropods from Asia is poor, hindering comparison of Asian predatory dinosaur faunas with those from other continents. One of the few large Asian
Two new basal coelurosaurian theropod dinosaurs from the Early Cretaceous Sao Khua Formation of Thailand
TLDR
Two new basal coelurosaurs from the Lower Cretaceous Sao Khua Formation of Thailand are described and named as Phuwiangvenator yaemniyomi gen. et sp.
A Basal Coelurosaur (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Late Jurassic (Oxfordian) of the Shishugou Formation in Wucaiwan, People's Republic of China
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of Zuolong salleei in a broadly sampled theropod data matrix recovers it as a basal coelurosaur, making it one of the oldest coel Kurosaur fossils yet known that preserves both cranial and postcranial bones.
A NEW BASAL COELUROSAUR (DINOSAURIA: THEROPODA) FROM THE MIDDLE JURASSIC OF SIBERIA
TLDR
The new Kileskus aristotocus gen. nov. from the Middle Jurassic (Bathonian) Itat Formation is one of the oldest members of Coelurosauria and Tyrannosauroidea in the fossil record and has a basal position within the Proceratosauridae.
Cranial osteology and phylogenetic position of the theropod dinosaur Proceratosaurus bradleyi (Woodward, 1910) from the Middle Jurassic of England
TLDR
The Bathonian age of Proceratosaurus extends the origin of all clades of basal coelurosaurs back into the Middle Jurassic, and provides evidence for an early, Laurasia-wide, dispersal of the Tyrannosauroidea during the late Middle to Late Jurassic.

THE OSTEOLOGY OF MASIAKASAURUS KNOPFLERI, A SMALL ABELISAUROID (DINOSAURIA: THEROPODA) FROM THE LATE CRETACEOUS OF MADAGASCAR
TLDR
The osteology of the new small theropod dinosaur Masiakasaurus knopfleri, from the Late Cretaceous Maevarano Formation of northwestern Madagascar, suggests that these taxa form a clade (Noasauridae) within Abelisauroidea.
Anatomy and phylogenetic relationships of the theropod dinosaur Microvenator celer from the Lower Cretaceous of Montana. American Museum novitates ; no. 3240
TLDR
Reexamination of the holotype revealed the presence of several autapomorphies that provide the basis for a revised diagnosis of Microvenator celer, the earliest known oviraptorosaurian or ovarian theropod represented by diagnostic skeletal remains.

On Asian ornithopods (Dinosauria: Ornithischia). 3. A new species of iguanodontid dinosaur
  • D. Norman
  • Environmental Science, Geography
  • 1998
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.
A NEW COELUROSAURIAN DINOSAUR FROM THE EARLY CRETACEOUS OF SOUTH AFRICA
Abstract We report the well preserved skeleton of a small theropod dinosaur, Nqwebasaurus thwazi, gen. et sp. nov., from the Lower Cretaceous Kirkwood Formation of South Africa. Nqwebasaurus has an
Cranial anatomy of Stenonychosaurus inequalis (Saurischia, Theropoda) and its bearing on the origin of birds
TLDR
The middle ear cavity is well defined and is connected to at least two systems of sinuses in the skull bones, which strengthen the claim that small carnivorous dinosaurs are more plausible bird ancestors than either pseudosuchians or crocodiles.
The smallest known non-avian theropod dinosaur
TLDR
This is the first mature non-avian dinosaur to be found that is smaller than Archaeopteryx, and it eliminates the size disparity between the earliest birds and their closest non-Avian theropod relatives.

A therizinosauroid dinosaur with integumentary structures from China
TLDR
This new taxon from the Yixian Formation provides fresh evidence that therizinosauroids are nested within the coelurosaurian theropods, and supports the hypothesis that the filamentous integumentary structures may be homologous to the feathers of birds.
