The species epithet (or specific name), downsi, honors the late Will Downs, a frequent participant in paleontological expeditions to China. Here we discuss some of the conï¬icts in shared, morphies were proposed to support this clade: a deep ventral, expansion of the medial process of the mandibular glenoid, a, short contact between the quadratojugal and quadrate, and, rugose sculpturing on the lateral surface of the dentary.

It consists of the skull roof exposed in dorsal view and, a disarticulated left maxilla, quadrate, dentary, splenial, and, angular. Bellusaurus is diagnosed by several unique autapomorphies, including a neurovascular foramen piercing the ascending process of the maxilla at midheight, the frontal process of the nasal extending farther posteriorly onto the frontal than the prefrontal, and U-shaped medial and lateral notches in the posterior margin of the ventral process of the squamosal. Ceratopsia includes some of the best-known ornithischian dinosaurs. There is no indication that these nodes are separate, The narrow and long quadrate process has a subtriangular, cross-section and a strongly concave lateral surface. These basic data are expected to be compared with data from other population of the same subspecies and Japanese wild pig. The Yujingzi Basin of the Trans-Altai (Western) Gobi of north-western Gansu Province, China, has produced a diverse Early Cretaceous dinosaurian fauna. 2).

Yinlong is derived from the Mandarin-Chinese "yin" (hidden) and "long" (dragon), in reference to the kung-fu spectacular 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon' which was partly filmed at Xinjiang, close to its place of discovery.

The orbital, process reaches approximately half way across the orbit and is, located approximately one-third of the way down the orbit. The caudal vertebrae bear straight, erect neural spines, the forelimbs are significantly shorter than the hindlimbs and the manus includes five digits, of which only three bear unguals.

While scoring ontogenetically variable characters as unknown may help to alleviate the biasing effects of ontogeny on the phylogenetic position of juvenile specimens, we caution that this approach may remove phylogenetically informative character information, and argue that inference methods that are known to be less sensitive to homoplasy than equal weights parsimony (i.e., implied weights parsimony; Bayesian approaches) should also be employed. In contrast to its descendant Triceratops, Yinlong was small and probably bipedal. 2011. Ph.D. dissertation, University of Pennsylvania, Norman, D. B., H. D. Sues, L. M. Witmer, and R. A. Coria.

Distally, the quadratojugal process divides into a small dorsal ramus and a. long caudal ramus that tapers caudoventrally to a blunt point. This new taxon is characterized by a prominent caudodorsal process on the subtemporal ramus of the jugal, a robust quadrate with an expansive quadratojugal facet, a prominent notch near the ventral region of the quadrate, a deep and short dentary, and strongly rugose texturing on the lateral surface of the dentary. 1890.

Behind the antorbital fossa, the maxilla and jugal have a long, straight, caudoventrally directed suture. The basioccipital has a tight and extensive contact, with the basisphenoid and together they form the basal tubera, which, are gently âWâ-shaped in outline in ventral view. 1999. 2000.

This is a particularly beautiful species of centrolenid - the Granular Glass Frog, Cochranella granulosa. nov., from the Upper Jurassic (Oxfordian) Shishugou Formation of the Junggar Basin, northwestern China.

While the extant great apes are commonly used as a reference sample for distinguishing between sexual dimorphism and intertaxic variation in the fossil record, few studies have evaluated mandibular dimorphism in these taxa. However, in A.L. A detailed comparison with other basal ceratopsians suggests that Yinlong downsi may belong within Chaoyangsauridae. 16â18). In this study. Anatomical comparisons of the cervical vertebrae of Klamelisaurus to several other sauropodomorphs and insights from myological studies of extant archosaurs strongly suggest that this latter structure, often considered part of an epipophyseal-prezygapophyseal lamina, is an epaxial muscle scar that is distinct from pneumatic structures of the lateral surface of the neural spine.

Phylogenetic analyses conducted under parsimony and time-calibrated Bayesian optimality criteria consistently recover Klamelisaurus as a member of a predominantly Chinese radiation of exceptionally long-necked eusauropods that includes Mamenchisaurus spp., Chuanjiesaurus, Qijianglong and Wamweracaudia.
