Talos sampsoni, new North American Late Cretaceous troodontid

From: Ben Creisler

There are news stories and some information about this new dinosaur out on
the web, but I don't see the article posted in PLoS ONE yet despite what
the news story says.

Here's a caption from the article:
Talos sampsoni is a member of a rare group of feathered, bird-like theropod
dinosaurs whose evolution in North America has been a longstanding source
of scientific debate, largely for lack of decent fossil material. Talos
represents the first definitive troodontid to be named from the Late
Cretaceous of North America in over 75 years. 

The only ref I can find for now is at:

Zanno, Lindsay E., David J. Varricchio, Patrick M. O?Connor, Alan L. Titus
& Michael J. Knell. In Press. A new troodontid theropod, Talos sampsoni
gen. et sp. nov., from the Upper Cretaceous Western Interior Basin of North
America . Public Library of Science.
