dc.description.abstract "A new ornithomimosaur from the Yixian Formation of Liaoning Province Peoples Republic of China is described. These beds are near the Jurassic-Cretaceous boundary. This specimen is interesting because it has several primitive characters for ornithomimosaurs such as teeth and a short first metacarpal. This taxon is placed in a phylogenetic analysis of Coelurosauria and shown to be near the base of the ornithomimosaur clade. Using this phylogeny we comment on the biogeographic history of this group"--P. [1]. en_US
