Extended Data Figure 5: Bivariate plots showing the results of the morphospace occupation analysis of Chilesaurus diegosuarezi gen. et sp. nov. based on characters of different regions of the skeleton, taken from the modified data matrix and the first and second axes of the principal coordinate analysis.

Extended Data Figure 5

ad, Bivariate plots using all the characters (a), cranial characters (b), hindlimb zeugopodium and stylopodium characters (c), and tarsal and pedal characters (d). The convex hulls represent different dinosauriform groups rather than statistically distinct clusters. Light grey polygon, non-neotheropod dinosauriforms; blue polygon, non-averostran neotheropods; green polygon, ceratosaurs; pink polygon, megalosauroids; dark grey polygon, allosauroids; light blue polygon, coelurosaurs; red dot, Chilesaurus.
