Diente de un coelurosaurio(Theropoda, Dinosauria) del Barremiense (CretÃcico Inferior) de El Castellar (Teruel, EspaÃa).
A coelurosaurian tooth (Theropoda, Dinosauria) from the Barremian (Lower Cretaceous) of El Castellar (Teruel, Spain).

An isolated tooth crown of a theropod dinosaur found in a Barremian outcrop (Lower Cretaceous) of El Castellar municipality (Maestrazgo Basin, PeÃagolosa sub-basin, Teruel, Spain) is described. The tooth crown has a zyphodont morphology, with distal denticles larger than mesial ones. This tooth is classified as Coelurosauria indet. due to morphological similarities found with dromaeosaurid and tyrannosauroid theropods.

Five new styracosternan fossils from the Cuencas Mineras region (Teruel) are described. This work notifies the first dinosaur fossils in the localities of Castel de Cabra and Las Parras de MartÃn, together with a new one found in Utrillas. This study allows us to propose the presence of two styracosternan morphotypes, a big-sized type (Styracosterna indet. 1) and a smaller type (Styracosterna indet. 2) in the Escucha Formation of the Iberian Range.

Injuries, trauma and healing processes can provide valuable information about ethology of fossil animals. Making paleopathological studies we could know specific aspects of life or death of animals. In the case of dinosaurs, in recent years, the studies of this discipline have increased. In this paper a pathological study of a theropod chevron from the third season of excavations of the ANA site, Cinctorres (upper Barremian, Maestrazgo Basin, CastellÃn), is presented.

Mesozoic vertebrates of Arcillas de Morella Fm. are widely known in different localities such as Morella, Cinctorres, Vallibona or Todolella. Nevertheless, there are outcrops in other localities of Els Ports (province of CastellÃn). Sites and fossils from these localities have not been described in detail. In this paper we present six dental specimens from Bassa del Mas del Guimerà (BMG) in Portell (CastellÃn), which has not yet been excavated. This confirms the great diversity of vertebrates present in this geological formation. In this case the analysis of six teeth found in a few square meters of sediment has allowed identifying two taxa of dinosaurs, a crocodylomorph, a plesiosaur and a pterosaur.
