One old dromaeosaurid paper
Good day dear DML members
Some time ago I got the following interesting paper:
Y.V. Suslov, 1982, "[Dromaeosaurid unguals from the Upper Cretaceous
deposits of the Kyzl-Orda region]," Kazakhstana Akad. Nauk Kazokhskoy
S.S.R. Inst. Zool. Mat. istorii fauny flory 8, pp 5-16. (In Russian)
Dromaeosauridae incertae sedis
Materials: IZ AS K 2/1 left manual ungual II
2/2 right pedal ungual III
2/3 right pedal ungual II
2/4 right manual ungual II
2/5 right pedal ungual II
Kyzl-Orda region, Shakh-skakh locality, the Upper Cretaceous.
There are some mistakes in this paper (note that the paper is comparatively
old). For example Stenonychosaurus referred to Dromaeosaurids.
Shakh-skakh dromaeosaurid is lager than Deinonychus and Velociraptor and its
pedal ungual II is more curved. I think Shakh-skakh dromaeosaurid may
related to Achillobator and Utahraptor.
I tried to translate it into English but didn't finish my work.
I make a *pdf* (sorry but poor quality - the original is also in bad
condition) so if someone want it just ask me.
