Paronychodon was a theropod dinosaur genus, and thought to be in the Troodonidae family. This a late Cretaceous dinosaur that lived from the Campanian to Maastrichian (70 to 66 MYA). So, they were present in the Judith River and Hell Creek Fm. Teeth Have been found, but not much else to describe this theropod. Note - Paronychodon teeth are typically found with teeth and they may be related much like the recent Sauronitholestes & Zapsalis teeth description (where Zapsalis in the Judith River Fm. is now described as the premaxillary tooth).
