A new species of compsognathid from the Early Cretaceous Yixian Formation of western Liaoning, China
The paper reports a new genus and species of compsognathids:
(gen. et sp. nov.). It possesses not only the
diagnostic characters of Compsognathidae, such as the fan-shaped dorsal
neural spines and robust phalanx I-1, but also some unique
characteristics different from other compsognathids, including the
un-serrated conical-shaped teeth, relatively long ulna, robust and long
phalanx II-1,and relatively short tail. The discovery further reveals the
great diversity of Compsognathidae and provides more information for
understanding the anatomical characters of compsognathids.
