New dinosaurs include sauropod Wamweracaudia keranjei and avialans Zygodactylus ochlurus, Conflicto antarcticus, and Shangyang graciles.

New studies came out on the cranial osteology of Beipiaosaurus inexpectus, the molecular evolution of maniraptor feathers, the diversification of trogonids, and the role of female feedback in song learning by Taeniopygia guttata. Corvus moneduloides are found to be able to infer weight of objects from their movements in a breeze. Female Melopsittacus undulatus are shown to prefer problem-solving males. Sauropodomorphs are suggested to be the trackmakers of Eubrontes tracks. A feathered enantiornithine foot preserved in amber and new specimens of Pachyrhinosaurus perotorum are described. Photoluminescence in the bills of Fratercula arctica is reported.

What genus do you think the Hell Creek ornithomimid is?

Also, don't you think the year 2019 in dinosaur paleontology is quite slow?

The Hell Creek ornithomimid is in need of more detailed study. Can't say I'm qualified to comment on its taxonomy at this stage!

January has felt slower than usual, yes. That's the way things are sometimes.

What non-euavialan avialan genera are there?

Albertonykus Featured By Owner Edited Nov 1, 2018
Archaeopteryx and Jeholornis are the ones most consistently found as non-euavialan avialans. Anchiornithids, scansoriopterygids, Balaur, and Rahonavis might also qualify.

How do you contribute to "Chile and Yi"? Do you draw the strip, write the text, color the strips or what?

Also, do you think you can review my images soon? (Again, I'm not rushing you)

Joan and I come up with the storylines and worldbuilding concepts for Chile & Yi together and I've written some of the dialogue. Joan does all of the art so far.

After SVP is over (i.e.: after this weekend), my schedule should free up a bit, but keep in mind that I mentioned from the get-go that I don't have much time to spend on reviewing them.
