Abstract

Based on a review of troodontid specimens from the territories of the former Soviet Union, including new discoveries from Uzbekistan, two dental morphotypes can be distinguished among Troodontidae from the Cretaceous of Asia: (1) unserrated teeth, present in Mei from Lujiatun (China; Early Cretaceous: Hauterivian-Barremian), an unnamed taxon from Hövöör (Mongolia; Early Cretaceous: Aptian-Albian), Urbacodon itemirensis, gen. et sp. nov. from Itemir and Urbacodon sp. from Dzharakuduk (Uzbekistan; Late Cretaceous: Cenomanian and Turonian, respectively), and Archaeornithoides from Bayn Dzak and Byronosaurus from Ukhaa Tolgod (Mongolia; Late Cretaceous: Campanian); and (2) serrated teeth, present in Sinornithoides from Huamuxiao (China; Early Cretaceous) and Sinornithoides-like taxa from Khamryn Us (Mongolia; Early Cretaceous: Aptian-Albian), Shestakovo (Russia; Early Cretaceous: Aptian-Albian), and Sheikhdzheili (Uzbekistan; Late Cretaceous: Cenomanian); Troodontidae indet. from Kansai (Tajikistan; Late Cretaceous: Santonian) and Alymtau (Kazakhstan; Late Cretaceous: Campanian), Saurornithoides (Mongolia and China; Late Cretaceous: Campanian-Maastrichtian), and Troodon from Kakanaut and Blagoveshchensk (Russia; Late Cretaceous: Maastrichtian).
