[36]This newer view created an image much more similar to modern flightless birds, such as the ostrich to which this dinosaur's name comes from, but would only much later be accepted for all theropods. Various Struthiomimus have appeared as background characters in the second and fourth film. Remarks on the reptiles generally called Dinosauria. Parks, W.A., 1933, "New species of dinosaurs and turtles from the Upper Cretaceous formations of Alberta", Marsh, O.C. They most likely represent a separate species of Struthiomimus, in 2001 by James Orville Farlow named Struthiomimus sedens[16] (again, first named as a species of Ornithomimus by Marsh, in 1892).[15][17]. 1994. (1892). Saurischia [5] As with other ornithomimids, it had a small slender head on a long neck (which made up about 40% of the length of the body in front of the hips).

University of California Press, Berkeley 137-150, R. Barsbold. Marsh at first included Struthiomimus in the Ornithopoda, a large clade of dinosaurs not closely related to theropods. The edge of the upper beak was concave in Struthiomimus, unlike Ornithomimus, which had straight beak edges. However, in 1914, a nearly complete skeleton was discovered by Barnum Brown at the Red Deer River site in Alberta, and officially described as the subgenus Struthiomimus by Henry Fairfield Osborn in 1917. Osborn, Henry Fairfield (1917). In 1976, Rinchen Barsbold saw the difference between ornithomimids and other theropods, and placed ornithomimids in their own infraorder, Ornithomimosauria. [7], The legs (hind limbs) of Struthiomimus were long, powerful and seemingly well-suited to rapid running, much like an ostrich. 1895. [6], Struthiomimus differed from close relatives only in subtle aspects of anatomy. In 2010 Gregory S. Paul renamed Ornithomimus edmontonicus Sternberg 1933 into a Struthiomimus edmontonicus,[17] but this has found no acceptance by other workers.

[14] This was probably a lapsus calami, a mistake for Ornithomimus lonzeensis (Dollo 1903) Kuhn 1965. A. Gauthier and K. Padian. Our wiki was founded in 2006. O. C. Marsh. Struthiomimus altus comes from the Late Campanian (Judithian age) Dinosaur Park Formation. All species of Struthiomimus had builds and skeletal structure typical of an ornithomimid, differing from closely related genera like Ornithomimus and Gallimimus in proportions and anatomical details. [8] It had the longest hands of any ornithomimid, with particularly long claws. However, in 1914, a nearly complete skeleton was discovered by Barnum Brown at the Red Deer River site in Alberta, and officially described as the subgenus Struthiomimus by Henry Fairfield Osbornin 1917. 37 Favourites. [13] These are today seen as either belonging to Dromiceiomimus or to Ornithomimus. Institute "Juan Valdez", Cuenca, Argentina 126-163. Follow/Fav Metempsychosis. [15] Since dinosaur fauna show rapid turnover, it could be that these younger Struthiomimus specimens will prove to be a species distinct from S. altus, though they have no new name. The supposed speed of Struthiomimus was, in fact, its main defense from predators (although it may also have been able to lash out with its hind claws when cornered), such as the dromaeosaurids (e.g. Struthiomimus is a member of the family Ornithomimidae, a group which also includes Anserimimus, Archaeornithomimus, Dromiceiomimus, Gallimimus, Ornithomimus, and Sinornithomimus.
