{This page is under construction.}. Incisivosaurus
is a genus of basal oviraptorosaur, perhaps the most, from the Yixian formation of Liaoning, China. It lived in the Valanginian-Hauterivian age, early Cretaceous. The type and only species is Incisivosaurus gauthieri, variously synonomised as Protarchaeopteryx gauthieri, or as specimens of P. robusta.[1][2][3]
