Fig 5 - A tiny maniraptoran dinosaur in the Lower Cretaceous Hastings Group: Evidence from a new vertebrate-bearing locality in south-east England

Fig. 5. BEXHM: 2008.14.1 shown in approximate life position within a generalised maniraptoran silhouette. The exact identity of this maniraptoran remains unknown: it is depicted as a generic member of the group, closely related to oviraptorosaurs and paravians. By duplicating and manipulating images of BEXHM: 2008.14.1, a schematic cervical column was generated and scaled to approximate size within the silhouette. This suggests a total skeletal length for the animal of c. 45 cm, though other body shapes suggest the possibility of smaller size (see text for discussion).
