Nhandumirim (meaning "small rhea" in the Tupi language) is a genus of probable theropod dinosaur from the Carnian-age of Late Triassic Brazil. The type and only species is known from a single immature specimen including vertebrae, a chevron, pelvic material, and a hindlimb found in the Santa Maria Formation of the Paraná Basin. The taxon is the earliest known theropod from the country.[1]
