Oviraptords new refs.

Dear Listmembers I think that for the Oviraptord's fun this is a good time,
after the Nemegtia's monograph now this new refs:

this is the abstract:
Heyuannia huangi Lu, 2003 from the Late Cretaceous of Southern China is
described in detail. The revised diagnosis of Heyuannia huangi includes the
following characters: quadratojugal articular surface of the quadrate
groove-lke, the quadrate diverticulum entering the quadrate anterolaterally,
metacarpal I wrapped around metacarpal II proximally, pneumatic foramina
present on the neural arches and ribs of cervical vertebrae, the angle
between the scapula and coracoid approximately 145º, the ratio of coracoid
length to scapular length approximately 0.35, the pubis as long as ischium,
and the ratio of femur length to tibia length 0.8. Two new oviraptorids from
the nanxiong Basin are also described. A phylogenetic analysis was carried
out in two parts. The first phylogenetic analysis is to test the systematic
position of Oviraptorosauria among ceolurosaurid dinosaurs. This analysis
shows that Oviraptorosauria form a monophyletic group. Incisivosaurus
gauthieri is the most basal oviraptorosaur and Caudipteryx is the second
most primitive form. Alvarezsauridae is a sister group to TO
(Therizinosauroidea and oviraptorosauria). Within this more inclusive
analysis (among Ceolurosauria), all the derived forms of Oviraptorosauria
(excluding the Primitive forms such as Incisivosaurus gauthieri and
Caudipteryx zoui) form an unresolved polytomy. The second analysis is to
determine the interrelation-ships among oviraptorosaurs. This less inclusive
analysis (only a few groups of Ceolurosauria were employed for analysis)
allows better resolution within Oviraptorosauria. The analysis shows that
all oviraptorosaurs form a monophyletic group, Incisivosaurus gauthieri is
the most basal oviraptotosaur, Caudipteryx zoui is the second most primitive
form and Avimimus portentosus is basal to the derived oviraptorosaurs. The
two new taxa from Nanxiong Basin are not nested within same clade.Specimen
BPV-112 may be the first caenagnathid oviraptorosaur found from southern
I don't known if there's a "pdf" version, but I don't think. However for
those that are interested it can be order here:

Hope this help
