Tetanurae comprised Carnosauria, a monophyletic group composed of Allosaurus, and Coelurosauria, containing modern birds and all taxa closer to modern birds than to Carnosauria. This chapter examines spinosauroids, carnosaurs, and basal coelurosaurs. Among the taxa in this chapter are the largest carnivorous dinosaurs found in Middle Jurassic through early Late Cretaceous faunal assemblages. The chapter also discusses some of the smallest nonavian dinosaurs, including Compsognathus and Sinosauropteryx.

Keywords:   Tetanurae, Carnosauria, Allosaurus, Coelurosauria, spinosauroids, carnosaurs, basal coelurosaurs, Compsognathus, Sinosauropteryx
