New Dromaeosaurid from the UK - Isle of Wight


Recommended Posts

Just published a paper that describe a new dromaeosaurid, Vectiraptor greeni from the Barremian Wessex Formation of the Isle of Wight.   

Very cool


Paper is paywalled but looks like its just vertebrae and partial sacrum that were discovered.   Posted it to get in on record since we have many collectors that have material from this locality.

I wonder if they’ll be able to assign the teeth found like mine to this species in the future. 

It’s a very cool name


Thanks for sharing

Not really, there may be multiple Dromaeosaurids in that fauna.  You need to find a jaw with teeth that ties to this specimen
