The paper reports a new genus and species of compsognathids: Beipiaognathus jii( gen. et sp. nov.). It possesses not only the diagnostic characters of Compsognathidae,such as the fan-shaped dorsal neural spines and robust phalanx Ⅰ-1,but also some unique characteristics different from other compsognathids,including the un-serrated conical-shaped teeth,relatively long ulna,robust and long phalanx Ⅱ-1,and relatively short tail. The discovery further reveals the great diversity of Compsognathidae and provides more information for understanding the anatomical characters of compsognathids.
