The Procompsognathus is a kind of small theropod dinosaur that lived during the late Triassic period (mid Norian stage), about 210 million years ago. It was named by Eberhard Fraas in 1913. He named the type species, P. triassicus, on the basis of a poorly-preserved skeleton found in Württemberg, Germany. They have a maximum size of about 1.2 meters long.

Naming Edit

The name "Procompsognathus" means "elegant jaw," coming from the Greek kompsos/κομψος, meaning "elegant," "refined," or "dainty," and gnathos/γναθος, meaning "jaw."
