Abstract. The Chañares Formation (latest Middle–earliest Late Triassic) of northwestern Argentina is part of the Ischigualasto–Villa Unión Basin and preserves a rich fossil vertebrate record discovered by a crew of the Museum of Comparative Zoology (Harvard University) led by Alfred Romer. A diverse non-dinosaurian dinosauromorph assemblage has been described from this formation and includes the iconic, small-sized “proto-dinosaur” Lagosuchus talampayensis Romer, 1971. This species has been… 
Taxonomic and phylogenetic reassessment of a large-bodied dinosaur from the earliest dinosaur-bearing beds (Carnian, Upper Triassic) from southern Brazil
TLDR
The reassessment of a dinosaur specimen from Brazil, informally known as the ‘Big Saturnalia’, a supposed large-sized sauropodomorph unearthed at the ’Cerro da Alemoa’ locality in Santa Maria municipality, Rio Grande do Sul State, results in herrerasaurid affinities instead.
New specimens provide insights into the anatomy of the dinosauriform Lewisuchus admixtus Romer, 1972 from the upper Triassic levels of the Chañares Formation, NW Argentina
TLDR
The cranial bones, presacral series, femur, tibia, and proximal tarsals of the new specimens match the preserved overlapping anatomy of the holotype and previously referred specimens of L. admixtus, improving the understanding of the anatomy and taxonomy of early dinosauriforms and reinforces the role of Argentinean beds on the study of the origin of dinosaurs.
A paraphyletic ‘Silesauridae' as an alternative hypothesis for the initial radiation of ornithischian dinosaurs
TLDR
Ornithischia changes from an obscure to a well-documented clade in the Triassic and is represented by records from Gondwana and Laurasia and was the first group of dinosaurs to adopt an omnivorous/herbivorous diet.

The phylogenetic nomenclature of ornithischian dinosaurs
TLDR
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.
Sacral co‐ossification in dinosaurs: The oldest record of fused sacral vertebrae in Dinosauria and the diversity of sacral co‐ossification patterns in the group
TLDR
The new specimen described here indicates that the fusion of sacral elements occurred early in the evolution of dinosaurs, and suggests that primordial sacral vertebrae fuse earlier in the lineage (as seen in Norian sauropodomorphs).

Dinosaurian precursors from the Middle Triassic of Argentina: Marasuchus lilloensis, gen. nov.
TLDR
Several synapomorphies unite Marasuchus and dinosaurs (as Dinosauriformes) to the exclusion of the contemporary dinosauromorph Lagerpeton and pterosaurs.
A New Early Coelophysoid Neotheropod from the Late Triassic of Northwestern Argentina
TLDR
Powellvenator podocitus represents the first coelophysoid from South America together with Lucianovenator bonoi from the Marayes-El Carrizal Basin and phylogenetic relationships of the new species were tested in a comprehensive analyses focused on early neotheropods.
Dinosaurian precursors from the Middle Triassic of Argentina: Lagerpeton chanarensis
TLDR
There is no evidence that Lagerpeton and other small-bodied dinosauromorphs in the Los Chanares fauna, namely “Lagosuchus” lilloensis, comprise a monophyletic group.

Osteology of the Middle Triassic archosaur Lewisuchus admixtus Romer (Chañares Formation, Argentina), its inclusivity, and relationships amongst early dinosauromorphs
TLDR
The parsimony analysis supports the basal position of L. admixtus within dinosauriforms, prior to the silesaurid–dinosaur split, rather than at the base of Silesauridae, and suggests that a higher number of early dinosauriform clades branched in the Middle and Late Triassic than previously suggested.

A review of the systematic position of the dinosauriform archosaur Eucoelophysis baldwini sullivan & lucas, 1999 from the upper triassic of New Mexico, USA
TLDR
A cladistic analysis was carried out, which depicts Eucoelophysis as a non-dinosaurian dinosauriform, indicating their survival into the Norian, being co-eval with early dinosaurs.
