New publication: Notes on Early Mesozoic Theropods by Robert Gay
I'm not sure if Rob is a member of this list, but the book seems to have been
published for a few days now, so I'll go ahead and share this.
Summary: Notes on Early Mesozoic Theropods contains two papers on the poorly
studied late Triassic and early Jurassic theropod dinosaur fauna of
The author discusses the evidence that has been used to support
cannibalism hypothesis in the late Triassic dinosaur Coelophysis, and
presents new evidence that disproves this commonly cited hypothesis.
In the second paper, the author names a new genus and species of
theropod dinosaur from the early Jurassic Kayenta Formation of Arizona.
The new taxon represents the oldest yet-known example of a Tetanuran
theropod in North America.
For those interested in the paleontological history of the American
southwest or the early evolutionary history of this interesting clade of
dinosaurs, Notes on Early Mesozoic Theropods adds more information to
the emerging picture of life in the southwest over 190 million years
The new theropod is named _Kayentavenator elysiae_.
