Article
The paleopathological record provides relevant information about paleobiology and paleoecology of fossil organisms. Based on the information obtained from paleopathologies, it is possible to infer how these injuries affected inter- and intraspecific relationships among organisms, and their interaction with the environment. For instance, fractures a...

Gracilisuchus stipanicicorum Romer, 1972 is a basal suchian from the Late Triassic Chañares Formation (Argentina), nested in the recently erected Gracilisuchidae, along with Turfanosuchus dabanensis Young, 1973 and Yonghesuchus sangbiensis Wu et al., 2001 from China. The six known specimens of Gracilisuchus Romer, 1972 preserve most of the skeleton...

Gracilisuchus stipanicicorum Romer, 1972a, the only species in its genus, is a small basal suchian, recovered from the Middle-Late Triassic Chañares Formation (La Rioja, Argentina). This species has been interpreted as related to various taxa within Archosauria, including Ornithosuchidae, Rauisuchidae and Crocodylomorpha. Recent phylogenetic analys...

Trialestes romeri (Reig) is an early crocodylomorph from the Ischigualasto Formation (late Carnian – early Norian; Ischigualasto – Villa Unión Basin, Argentina) and one of the oldest-known members of this clade. Two specimens of this species are known, the holotype (PVL 2561) and a referred specimen (PVL 3889), both consisting of associated cranial...

El flóculo es una estructura cerebelar asociada al reflejo oculomotor, el cual integra el movimiento del cuello, ojos y órganos del balance. El flóculo ha sido asociado a la capacidad de vuelo en arcosaurios, dado su máximo desarrollo en aves y pterosaurios. Por ello, su presencia en dinosaurios téropodos se relacionó con el bipedalismo, ya que el...

Background The origin and early radiation of archosaurs and closely related taxa (Archosauriformes) during the Triassic was a critical event in the evolutionary history of tetrapods. This radiation led to the dinosaur-dominated ecosystems of the Jurassic and Cretaceous, and the high present-day archosaur diversity that includes around 10,000 bird a...
Article
Extant crocodylians have a limited taxonomic and ecological diversity but they belong to a lineage (Crocodylomorpha) that includes basal and rather generalized species and a highly diverse clade, Crocodyliformes. The latter was among the most successful groups of Mesozoic tetrapods, both in terms of taxonomic and ecological diversity. Crocodyliform...

Gracilisuchus stipanicicorum Romer, 1972, from the Middle-Late Triassic of the Ischigualasto–Villa Unión Basin of Argentina, is an extinct pseudosuchian archosaur on the stem to Crocodylomorpha. The pelvic girdle and hind limb anatomy of a referred specimen of Gracilisuchus stipanicicorum is described and compared with that from a broad range of ar...

The best-known South American Early Triassic archosauriform belongs to a putative proterosuchid briefly reported by Jo e Bonaparte in 1981, collected from the Quebrada de los osiles Formation (Puesto Viejo Group, Argentina). This specimen consists of well-preserved natural external molds of a partial postcranium that preserve dorsal vertebrae, os-t...

Notosuchia is a large and diverse group of Crocodyliforms, characterized, among other features, by a heterodont dentition. New information on the tooth anatomy of Notosuchus terrestris is presented, based on well-preserved specimens from the Late Cretaceous of Patagonia (southern Argentina). This allows a complete characterization of its dental ana...

A new large theropod, Orkoraptor burkei nov. gen. et nov. sp., from the Upper Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) Pari Aike Formation of southern Patagonia is based on a postorbital, quadratojugal, coronoid?, several teeth, an atlantal intercentrum and neurapophysis, two caudal vertebrae, and the proximal half of tibia. This new theropod exhibits characteri...
