Alamitornis was a late Cretaceous era bird that seemed to have been quite gracile in form. In the 2009 description it was also considered to possibly be related to Patagopteryx. Alamitornis would have likely shared the same habitats with dinosaurs such as the sauropod Aeolosaurus and the hadrosaur Secernosaurus.
