New oviraptorosaur

Hi All -

   Some new papers out:

Lü, J. and Zhang, B.-K. 2005. A new oviraptorid (Theropoda: Oviraptorosauria) from the Upper Cretaceous of the Nanxiong Basin, Guangdong Province of southern China. Acta Palaeontologica Sinica 44(3): 412-422.

ABSTRACT: _Shixinggia oblita_ gen. et sp. nov. herein described was collected from Shixing County, Nanxiong Basin of Guangdong Province, southern China, by the Beijing Natural History Museum in 1995. It is characterized by a relatively short preacetabular process of the ilium compared with its postacetabular process, and relatively high ratio of the ilium height (above the center of the acetabulum) to its length, the ventral margins of the preacetabular and postacetabular processes are much higher than the dorsal margin of the acetabulum, however. _Shixinggia_ shows a special character of large openings present on the anterior mesial surface of the trochanteric ridge in the femur, and the proximal end of the tibia, those openings are not reported in any known oviraptorosaurs. This is the second new genus of oviraptorosaurs from southern China in addition to _Heyuannia huangi_, which was reported in 2003.
