It Came From New Papers



A bunch of new taxa of various kinds, as well as a plethora of other papers, 
in various Chinese journals...thanks to Jay Nair for the head's up on some 
of these!  Before anyone asks, I don't have any of these yet -- sorry! 


First, the new taxa -- and not a saurischian body fossil in the bunch, but 
lots of new entries for the "Z" column in the list of dinosaur names:


Lu, J., Jin, X., Sheng Y., Li, Y., Wang, G., and Azuma, Y. 2007. New 
nodosaurid dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of Lishui, Zhejiang Province, 
China. Acta Geologica Sinica (English Edition) 81(3): 344-350.

     -- introduces _Zhejiangosaurus lishinensis_.


Jia, C., Foster C.A., and Clark, J.M. 2007. The first stegosaur (Dinosauria, 
Ornithischia) from the Upper Jurassic Shishugou Formation of Xinjiang, 
China. Acta Geologica Sinica (English Edition) 81(3): 351-356.

    -- introduces _Jiangjunosaurus junggarensis_.


Xu, L., Lu, J., Zhang, X., Jia, S., Hu, W., Zhang, J., Wu, Y., and Ji, Q. 
2007. New nodosaurid ankylosaur from the Cretaceous of Ruyang, Henan 
Province. Acta Geologica Sinica 81(4): 433-438.

     -- introduces _Zhongyuansaurus luoyangensis_.  Note that this is NOT 
the English Edition f the journal!


Zhao, X., Li, D., Han, G., Hao, H., Liu, F., Li, L., and Fang, X. 2007. 
_Zhuchengosaurus maximus_ from Shandong Province. Acta Geoscientia Sinica 
28(2): 111-122.

    -- appears to be a hadrosaur, based on the English papers being cited in 
the bibliography.


Lu, J., Zhang, X., Jia, S., Hu, W., Wu, Y., and Ji, Q. 2007. The discovery 
of theropod dinosaur footprints from the Middle Jurassic Yima Formation of 
Yima County, Henan Province. Acta Geologica Sinica 81(4): 439-444.

     -- new ichnospecies: _Changpeipus xuiana_.


Strangely, there was _supposed_ to be a new therizinosaur in one of these 
issues, too, but it ain't there...



More dino stuff, but no new taxa of which I'm aware presently:


Zhang, L., Yang, Y., Zhang, L., Guo, S., Wang, W., and Zheng, S. 2007. 
Precious fossil-bearing beds of the Lower Cretaceous Jiufotang Formation in 
western Liaoning Province, China. Acta Geologica Sinica (English Edition) 
81(3): 357-364.


Ji S., and Ji, Q. 2007. _Jinfengopteryx_ compared to _Archaeopteryx_, with 
comments on the mosaic evolution of long-tailed avialan birds. Acta 
Geologica Sinica (English Edition) 81(3): 337-343.


Fang, X., Cheng, Z., Zhang, Z., Pang, Q., Han, Y., Xie, H., and Li, P. 2007. 
Evolutionary series of dinosaur eggs and environmental changes in 
southwestern Henan-northwestern Hubei. Acta Geoscientia Sinica 28(2): 
97-110.


Fang, X., Zhang, Z., Pang, Q., Li, P., Han, Y., Xie, H., Yan, R., Pang, F., 
Lu, J., and Cheng, Z. 2007. Cretaceous strata and egg fossils in Xixia, 
Henan Province. Acta Geoscientia Sinica 28(2): 123-142.
