is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived in South America during the
late Triassic. Erythrovenator was established upon
the description of
a partial femur, specifically the proximal end (the part that
connects to the hip). Because of this any specific details about
the lifestyles and features of this dinosaur are at the time of writing
hard to establish.
