Eodromeus

Eodromaeus (meaning "dawn runner") is a genus of carnivorous theropod dinosaur from the Late Triassic period. It is a basal theropod which lived during the late Triassic period (middle Carnian age, about 232–229 million years ago) in what is now Argentina. Eodromaeus was named by Ricardo N. Martinez, Paul C. Sereno, Oscar A. Alcober, Carina E. Colombi, Paul R. Renne, Isabel P. Montañez and Brian S. Currie in 2011 and the type species is Eodromaeus murphi. It has been cited by Sereno as resembling a supposed common ancestor to all dinosaurs, the "Eve" of the dinosaurs.
