New dinosaurs include new species of Mochlodon M. vorosi. There are also reportedly three other new iguanodontians, Huxleysaurus hollingtoniensis (formerly a species of Iguanodon), Darwinsaurus evolutionis, and new species of Mantellisaurus M. carpenteri, but no one seems to have the paper (at least not in digital form).

A neonatal Talenkauen santacrucensis specimen, a new specimen of Mei long (miraculously also in a sleeping position), and the soaring cycle of Diomedea exulans are described. Evidence of South American stegosaurs is confirmed. Aphelocoma californica are found to react to their dead and Corvus moneduloides are found to use casual reasoning. Potential cellular and molecular mechanisms for the development of early feather types are suggested. The evolution of quadrupedality in different ornithischian groups is investigated. The backwards flight of trochilids is found to be quite efficient. A rumored new study on Galveosaurus herreroi suggests it is a macronarian, but again this paper doesn't appear to have turned up online.

Edit: I've now been informed by :iconzimices: that the three rumored iguanodontians and the Galveosaurus phylogeny study actually have not been published, existing only as abstracts.

Darwinsaurus evolutionis? I see someone was having fun with names when they discovered that one. :3

But if it's a rumor, that could explain it. :/

It's not entirely a rumor; there's a paper and some people have seen it. It just appears to either be really hard to come by or not formally published yet.

Darwinsaurus evolutionis? Seriously?

Shouldn´t a name like this go to an animal with a more recognizable transition (deinonychosaurian-avian; dinosauromorph-dinosaurian; etc.)?

Maybe it displays distinctive transitional features between hadrosaurs and non-hadrosaur iguanodontians. :D But yeah... :P

Of course, we still need to wait for the paper.
