Jurassic of South Africa and its implications for the early evolution
of theropods. Palaeontologia africana 41, 105-122.
Abstract. A new theropod, Dracovenator regenti, from the upper Elliot
Formation is described, based upon a fragmentary skull. It can be
diagnosed on the basis of a bilobed fossa on the lateral surface of the
premaxilla that is connected to the alveolar margin by a narrow
channel, the presence of a deep, oblique, lateral notch on the
articular and hypertrophied dorsal processes on the articular. Other
aspects of its morphology display a mosaic of coelophysoid and advanced
theropod characteristics. A cladistic analysis of basal Theropoda,
including the new taxon finds that the new taxon is closely related to
Dilophosaurus wetherilli and Zupaysaurus rougieri although the clade
formed by these three taxa is not robustly supported. It also finds
that Coelophysoidea sensu lato is paraphyletic with respect to
Ceratosauria + Tetanurae but that this topology is not a significantly
better explanation of the data than an inclusive, monophyletic
