Searchbutton Introducing ELOPTERYX


(pronounced ee-LOP-ter-iks) Elopteryx ("marsh wing") was a theropod dinosaur (a bipedal meat-eater) from the late Cretaceous period, about 73-65 million years ago. It may be a Troodontid.

A femur (thigh bone) and few fossil fragments were found in Romania. It was named by paleontolgist Andrews in 1913. The type species is E. nopscai, but this is a dubious genus and species (and may be the same as Bradycneme).
