Ji at al (2003) described Shenzhousaurus orientalis, the oldest known Ornithomimosauria from the lowest more fluvial, volcanoclastic beds of Yixian Formation (Lower Valanginian-Lower Barremian; Shwisher et al 2002). Here we describe a second ornithominosaur [Hexing qingyinn] from the same beds.
As it is usually the case for fossils discovered in the Yixian Formation, this specimen was discovered by a local farmer, who began its preparation. The fossil was subsequently carefully prepared in the laboratory of the Geological Museum of Jilin University.
All the dubious parts of the sekeleton, which may have been affected by the preperation of the local farmer, have been removed and are not included in the description.
