rinchenia

Genus Rinchenia

is a genus of oviraptoid theropod dinosaurs from late Cretaceous Mongolia. Rinchenia is known solely from a single incomplete skeleton of its only species R. mongoliensis. Rinchenia has alot in common with its sister genus Oviraptor and was originally part of oviraptor until several features in its skull and skeleton were shown to be distinct. Rinchenia was around the same size as oviraptor at around 5 feet long, it also had a distinct casque unlike oviraptors whose casque is indistinct due to poor preservation.

Name: Rinchenia mongoliensis 

Name Meaning: Named after Rinchen Barsbold

First Described: 2004

Described By: Osmólska, Currie & Barsbold (yup, he named it after himself)

ClassificationDinosauria, Saurischia, Eusaurischia, Theropoda, Neotheropoda, Averostra, Tetanurae, Orionides, Avetheropoda, Coelurosauria, Tyrannoraptora, Maniraptoriformes, Maniraptora, Pennaraptora, Oviraptorosauria, Caenagnathoidea, Oviraptoridae

Rinchenia was originally named as a separate species of Oviraptor, however a study in 1997 found that it was different enough to have its own genus. It is only known from one specimen consisting of fragmentary remains, though including a complete skull. It was the same size as Oviraptor, about 1.5 meters long, and a little less than 1 meter high. Its crest was poorly preserved, so its exact shape is not entirely known. It was found in Mongolia, and lived in the Campanian age of the Late Cretaceous, about 70 million years ago.

Nomingia gobiensis

By Ashley Patch on @apatchsketches

Name: Nomingia gobiensis 

Name Meaning: Nomingiin Gobi 

First Described: 2000

Described By: Barsbold et al. 

ClassificationDinosauria, Saurischia, Eusaurischia, Theropoda, Neotheropoda, Averostra, Tetanurae, Orionides, Avetheropoda, Coelurosauria, Tyrannoraptora, Maniraptoriformes, Maniraptora, Pennaraptora, Oviraptorosauria, Oviraptoridae 

Our first oviraptor that actually resembles the classic oviraptor, Nomingia was a fairly small member of the family, only about 1.7 meters long. It was found in the Bugin Tsav Beds, Nemegt Formation, Mongolia, and lived in the Maastrichtian age of the Late Cretaceous, about 70 million years ago. This dinosaur was unique in having five fused vertebra at the tail end much like in birds, which probably supported a feather fan, used for display and signaling to other members of its species. As an oviraptorid, it probably would have had beaked jaws and a display crest on its head. Its diet is still under debate, like most of its group. It lived alongside animals such as Rinchenia, Avimimus, Gallimimus, Therizinosaurus, Saurolophus, Tarchia, Nemegtosaurus, Adasaurus, Zanabazar, Alioramus and Tarbosaurus
