A troodontid dinosaur Tochisaurus nemegtensis gen. et sp. n., is described. Material consists of a solitary metatarsus from the upper Campanian or lower Maastrichtian Nemegt Formation, southern Gobi, Mongolia. The metatarsus is
very slender and has strongly reduced second metatarsal, which implies that the second pedal digit was also reduced.

Key words: Dinosauria, Theropoda, Troodontidae, Late Cretaceous, Mongolia.
