Early Cretaceous

Barremian Spain

Las Hoyas

Las Hoyas was an inland lake environment with important aquatic and terrestrial flora. Crocodylomorphs are the most abundant amniotes from Las Hoyas. Dinosaurs from Las Hoyas are unique in many ways. The first ornithomimid dinosaur described in Europe, Pelecanimimus polyodon, shows some characters previously unknown in these dinosaurs which enhanced the knowledge on the evolution of the group, such as a high number of teeth.
