Currie and Xian Zhao in the Shishugou Formation during an expedition to the northwestern Chinese desert in 1987. The type species, S. dongi, honors paleontologist Dong Zhiming. It was described by Currie and Zhao in 1994. A second species, originally named Yangchuanosaurus hepingensis by Gao in 1992, may actually represent a second species of Sinraptor. Whether...

Yangchuanosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur from the Oxfordian (and possibly Kimmeridgian) stage of the Late Jurassic Period, and comes from the Upper Shaximiao Formation. A nearly complete skeleton was discovered in June 1977 by a construction worker during the building of the Shangyou Reservoir Dam in the Yongchuan District. This genus was considered the same as Metriacanthosaurus by Gregory S. Paul in 1988, but this has not received the support of other paleontologists. The...
