Re: new dinosaurs
Both Appalachiosaurus and Xinjiangovenator are published in the new issue of
Appalachiosaurus montgomeriensis (Carr, Williamson, et Schwimmer 2005) is a
basal tyrannosauroid from the Demopolis Formation(~77.5 Ma) of Alabama. It is
based upon a partial skull and postcranium.
Xinjiangovenator parvus (Rauhut et Xu 2005) is found to be a maniraptoran. It
is based upon the articulated partial hindlimb previously referred to
Phaedrolosaurus ilikensis, and is from the Lianmugin Formation (Valanginian-
Albian) of China.
In the same paper, Tugulusaurus faciles is declared to be a valid taxon of
basal coelurosaur, and Phaedrolosaurus ilikensis and Kelmayisaurus petrolicus
are posited as dubious names. I would care to know how Tugulusaurus compares
with Magnosaurus nethercombensis.
