This chapter focuses on Oviraptorosauria, a group of Cretaceous maniraptoran theropods. Oviraptorosaurs had massive toothless jaws, and tall, median bony crests, or casques, sometimes surmounted their shortened, deep, and highly pneumatized skulls. The members of the Oviraptorosaurian clade include Avimimus, Caudipteryx, Incisivosaurus, Citipati, Rinchenia, Ingenia, Conchoraptor, and Khaan. Oviraptorosaurs are distributed in Late Cretaceous depositional environments in Central Asia and North America.

Keywords:   Oviraptorosauria, oviraptorosaurs, Avimimus, Caudipteryx, Incisivosaurus, Citipati, Rinchenia, Ingenia, Conchoraptor, Khaan
