Velocipes is a theropod known from part of the fibula, collected from the Lissauer Breccia in Poland, living in the Norian age of the Late Triassic, approximately sometime between 228 and 208.5 million years ago. The only specimen of it was very poorly preserved, though it has been confirmed as an early derived theropod, which makes sense given its time of origin.

Veterupristisaurus is known from the holotype specimen MB R 1938, an isolated middle caudal vertebra. The holotype was collected in the St (EH) locality of the Tendaguru in German East Africa, from the Middle Dinosaur Member of the Tendaguru Formation, dating to the late Kimmeridgian to earliest Tithonian faunal stage of the Late Jurassic, about 154-150 million years ago.

P is for Pegomastax  Pegomastax africana was a heterodontosaurid from the Lower Jurassic of South Africa, living about 195 million years ago. It probably measured no more than 60cm in length (~2ft). A partial skull specimen was collected in the 1960s, but it wasn’t officially described and recognized as a unique genus until 2012.  Heterodontosaurids were an early group of small ornithischian dinosaurs. Their name, “different-toothed lizards”, refers to their odd teeth: a set of pointy…
