Protarchaeopteryx, meaning "before Archaeopteryx," is a genus of feathered theropod dinosaur from the Aptian age of the Early Cretaceous Period (124 million years ago). It was found in the Jianshangou bed of the Yixian Formation in what is now China. It was most likely more primitive than Archaeopteryx, making it a non-avian theropod dinosaur rather than a true avian bird. Protarchaeopteryx was about 3.3 feet in length, making it larger than Archaeopteryx. It had symmetrical feathers on...

Rinchenia is a genus of oviraptorid dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period. It is only known by one species, R. mongoliensis. This specimen was originally named as an Oviraptor in 1986 by Rinchen Barsbold, but after further studies in 1997 by Barsbold, and in 2004 by Osmólska, the name was finally changed to Rinchenia. Rinchenia is known only from a single specimen consisting of a complete skull and lower jaw, partial vertebrae, partial forelimbs, partial hind limbs, pelvis, and...

Nomingia is a genus of theropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period. It was discovered in the Bugin Tsav Beds around the Gobi Desert. It is named for the Nomingiin Gobi, which is part of the nearby Gobi Desert. It was described in 2000 based on several skeletal fragments. The type species is N. gobiensis. Nomingia was a medium-sized theropod with beaked jaws and possibly a display crest. Nomingia is characterized by the fused vertebrae at the end of the tail that forms a unique mass....

Nemegtomaia, meaning "Nemegt mother", is a genus of oviraptoran dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period of what is now Mongolia. The type species, N. barsboldi, was described by a team of scientists in 2004. It was originally named Nemegtia, which was a name given to another specimen found in the same formation. It was renamed in 2005. This dinosaur is known from fairly good remains and well-preserved skull. The skull was originally thought to belong to the genus Ingenia, until further...

Gigantoraptor is a genus of large oviraptorosaur dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period (85 million years ago). It was discovered in 2005 in the Iren Dabasu Formation in the Erlian basin, Mongolia. It was discerned that this specimen was closely related to the Oviraptor, although much larger. Only one incomplete individual has been found, and from studies of the growth rings, it was determined to be about 11 years old when it died. It was considered a young adult and was still growing. The...
