The oldest centrosaurine: a new ceratopsid dinosaur (Dinosauria: Ceratopsidae) from the Allison Member of the Menefee Formation (Upper Cretaceous, early Campanian), northwestern New Mexico, USA
An associated incomplete skeleton of a ceratopsid dinosaur from the Campanian deposits of the Allison Member of the Menefee Formation in New Mexico, USA is described. Although it was originallyExpand
A New Centrosaurine Ceratopsid, Machairoceratops cronusi gen et sp. nov., from the Upper Sand Member of the Wahweap Formation (Middle Campanian), Southern Utah
A new centrosaurine ceratopsid from the upper member of the Wahweap Formation is described based on cranial material representing a single individual recovered from a calcareous mudstone, which aligns Machairoceratops as the definitive sister taxon to a clade formed by Diabloceratops and Albertaceratops.

Nasutuceratops Titusi, a new basal centrosaurine dinosaur (Ornithischia: Ceratopsidae) from the upper cretaceous Kaiparowits Formation, Southern Utah
Remains of a previously unknown horned dinosaur were recently recovered from the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) Kaiparowits Formation of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, southern Utah.Expand
New Horned Dinosaurs from Utah Provide Evidence for Intracontinental Dinosaur Endemism
Two new, co-occurring ceratopsids from the Upper Cretaceous Kaiparowits Formation of Utah are described that provide the strongest support to date for the dinosaur provincialism hypothesis and further suggest the presence of latitudinally arrayed evolutionary centers of endemism within chasmosaurine cer atopsids during the late Campanian.

New material and systematic re-evaluation of Medusaceratops lokii (Dinosauria, Ceratopsidae) from the Judith River Formation (Campanian, Montana)
Abstract. Medusaceratops lokii Ryan, Russell, and Hartman, 2010 is an enigmatic taxon of ceratopsid represented by partial parietals from the Mansfield bonebed in the Campanian Judith RiverExpand
A new chasmosaurine from northern Laramidia expands frill disparity in ceratopsid dinosaurs
The new taxon represents the oldest chasmosaurine from Canada, and the first pre-Maastrichtian ceratopsid to have been collected on both sides of the Canada–US border, with a minimum north–south range of 380 km. Expand
A new ceratopsid from the Foremost Formation (middle Campanian) of Alberta
Xenoceratops foremostensis gen. et. sp. nov., a new centrosaurine ceratopsid from the Foremost Formation (Campanian) of Alberta, is described based on frill material from at least three adult-sizedExpand
Turanoceratops tardabilis—the first ceratopsid dinosaur from Asia
Reexamination of the original and study of newly collected material indicate that Turanoceratops has well-developed supraorbital horns and apparently lacks a nasal horn. Expand
Sierraceratops turneri, a new chasmosaurine ceratopsid from the Hall Lake Formation (Upper Cretaceous) of south-central New Mexico
Abstract The horned dinosaurs (Ceratopsidae) were a diverse family of herbivorous dinosaurs originating in the Late Cretaceous in western North America (Laramidia). As one of the most species-richExpand
Morphological variation and asymmetrical development in the skull of Styracosaurus albertensis
A re-evaluation of variation in Styracosaurus that includes this skull expands the morphological range of the taxon to incorporate Rubeosaurus ovatus, requiring the synonymy of the latter with the former. Expand
