It’s been a long time coming, but on behalf of my coauthors it is my pleasure to introduce the world to a new dinosaur, Hesperornithoides miessleri. Hesperornithoides is a small, winged theropod from the Late Jurassic of Wyoming that appears to be most closely related to Troodon and kin.

You can find the paper here.

I’ve written up the basics and answered the most common questions about Hesperornithoides in this blog post.
