A basal ceratopsian diagnosed by the following autapo-, morphies: a distinct fossa along the midline of the frontals; a slit-, like carotid canal bordered by laminae; premaxillary teeth with a, vertical wear facet and a basal shelf; a deep sulcus on the ventral, surface of the quadratojugal; large oval nodules concentrated on, the lateral surface of the jugal; and a squamosal with an expanded. from Kelamaili, Juggar Basin, Xinjiang, China. In IVPP V18636, there are seven denticles on the margin of the, second premaxillary tooth; the denticles are wide at the base and, taper to their tip. From the present data, the growth pattern was established for some items. All mar-, gins of the antorbital fossa are prominent, unlike other, neoceratopsians, where the rostral margin is weakly defined, Dodson, 2003). cal Journal of the Linnean Society 55:151–175. The tooth row extends to the rear of the maxilla and is fully. It includes the small heterodontosaurids from the Early Jurassic and euornithopods, which range widely in body size and are known from the Middle Jurassic to the end of the Cretaceous. tubercle extends laterally to overhang the angular. Additionally, a caniniform premaxillary tooth is present in one small specimen (IVPP V18636), which may suggest sexual dimorphism or individual variation.SUPPLEMENTAL DATA—Supplemental materials are available for this article for free at www.tandfonline.com/UJVPCitation for this article: Han, F.-L., C.

Combined, these findings indicate that mandibular dimorphism patterns can and do vary considerably, even among closely related species, and suggest that it would be difficult to employ great ape mandibular dimorphism patterns for purposes of distinguishing between intra- and interspecies variation in fossil samples.

Beg is diagnosed by a unique combination of primitive and derived characters including a primitively deep premaxilla with four premaxillary teeth, a trapezoidal antorbital fossa with a poorly delineated anterior margin, very short dentary with an expanded and shallow groove on lateral surface, the derived presence of a robust jugal having a foramen on its anteromedial surface, and five equally spaced tubercles on the lateral ridge of the surangular. The facet is widest, ventrally but narrows dorsally to a small sulcus at approximately, three-fifths of the distance up the quadrate shaft. exposed in lateral view when the mandible is articulated.

Its rostral and caudal margins are nearly, parallel, and the process terminates in an angled suture, broader process, and basal ornithopods and, which have long, tapering processes (Barrett and Han, 2009; Nor-, 2002), whereas the premaxilla and lacrimal contact in derived, not extend beyond the caudal margin of the main body, as in, the maxillary process extends further caudally. Postcanine tooth area and length (estimated from mesiodistal and buccolingual measurements of upper and lower cheek teeth) were scaled to 4 cranial measures: bimaxillary width, maxillo-alveolar length, mandibular length and bigonial width.

An Osteometrical Study of the Cranium and Mandible of Ryukyu Wild Pig in Iriomote Island. Several features identified here, including a preantorbital opening in the maxilla, a stepped dorsal margin of the vomerine process of the pterygoid, and the partitioning of the dorsal midline endocranial fossae associated with the dural venous sinuses into anterior and posterior components by a transverse ridge of the parietal, are consistent with recent phylogenetic hypotheses that recover Bellusaurus as a basal macronarian or close relative of Neosauropoda. Lithostratigraphical correlation places Klamelisaurus below a tuff from the middle beds of the Shishugou Formation at Wucaiwan approximately 95 km away, which has been radiometrically dated to 162.2 ± 0.2 Ma (Choiniere et al. It is dorsoventrally narrow and rostrocaudally thick at. Pattern stability is assessed to determine whether there are stable patterns of mandibular size and shape dimorphism that may be usefully applied to hominoid or hominid fossil species recognition studies. Magericyon: from fossil to virtual to art. In sauropodomorphs the jugal eventually became small, plate-like and nearly restricted to the area below the orbit, even being excluded from the ventral margin of the skull in many derived taxa.

Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology 31:84–92. A detailed comparison with other basal ceratopsians suggests that Yinlong downsi may belong within Chaoyangsauridae. The results obtained here are summarized as follows: (1) Although sexual dimorphism was already, Cranial base morphology differs among hominoids in ways that are usually attributed to some combination of an enlarged brain, retracted face and upright locomotion in humans.
