A number of recent news items:


Saltillomimus, ornithomimid from Coahuila region debuts in Mexico

News stories in Spanish about the formal public presentation of a
72-million-year-old ornithomimid named "Saltillomimus rapidus," based
on a partial articulated skeleton found along with a juvenile specimen
at Saltillo in Coahuila State in Mexico. It appears the formal
description has not been published yet, although a link to the
dissertation with the name is online.
