>What is known about Hulsanpes, Adasaurus and Phaedrolosaurus?
Hulsanpes is a foot from Mongolia, and is almost certainly not dromaeosaurid.
Adasaurus has not been well illustrated. It has a smaller sickle claw than
typical dromaeosaurids, and a slender hand. It does have an opisthopubic
(backwards pointing pubis) pelvis.
Phaedrolosaurus is based on some incomplete hindlimb bones. It might be a
dromaeosaurid, but could be some other sort of coelurosaur.
>What about that discovery of a dromeosaur(?) in Japan some year(s) ago?
Someone recently posted a news item about the Japanese dromaeosaurid:
perhaps they can forward a copy of the post to you.
>Is there any other recently discovered dromeosaur?
There is a French dromaeosaurid (to be described), fragmentary specimens
from the Sudan and from Romania (mentioned in a post by me earlier today),
and a creature from Madagascar with features of both birds and
dromaeosaurids (which, just to remind the list HAS NOT YET BEEN NAMED NOR
FORMALLY DESCRIBED, although you can see a picture of the bones in a recent
issue of Natural History).
