Shuvosaurus



Hi, again! _Shuvosaurus_ is so strange as _Protoavis_, since it is so
fragmentary (only the skull, two vertebraes and a fragment from a scapula).
The skull has some strange features that no other theropod has, like the nasal
forming the dorsal border of the antorbital fenestra, for example. So, until
somebody could see the original material and make an aditional publication, its
assignment to the Ornithomimosauria must be taken carefully. And, of course,
the existence of Coelurosauria in the Triassic.
See you! Nino.
