Daemonosaurus fills a gap in the fossil record

New dinosaur species is a missing link – This Just In - Blogs:

This dinosaur provides a link between what paleontologists consider 'early' and 'later' dinosaurs. There's a gap in the fossil record between the oldest known dinosaurs, which walked or ran on their hind legs about 230 million years ago in Argentina and Brazil, and other predatory dinosaurs that lived much later. Daemonosaurus chauliodus helps fill in a blank in dinosaur history.
Not to be confused with Doctor Who's Dæmons, who filled a gap between goats and sasquatch.
