The first recorded pachycephalosaurid dinosaur from outside of North America, “Troodon” bexelli, was described from the Upper Cretaceous of Nei Mongol (Inner Mongolia) Autonomous Region, China, in 1953 based on a partial parietal dome. The holotype, and only, specimen has not been redescribed or figured since the original description and is currently considered lost. As a result, researchers have generally considered this taxon a nomen dubium. Here, we identify and describe two high-fidelity…

Cranial variation and systematics of Foraminacephale brevis gen. nov. and the diversity of pachycephalosaurid dinosaurs (Ornithischia: Cerapoda) in the Belly River Group of Alberta, Canada

TLDR
It is found that both ontogeny and osteohistology can vary greatly amongst even closely related species, and it is critical that multiple, independent lines of evidence be used to establish the ontogenetic trajectories of species before delineation, and that results of these analyses are used to produce robust and phylogenetically informative characters for use in phylogenetic analyses.

A NEW GENUS OF DERIVED PACHYCEPHALOSAURIAN FROM WESTERN NORTH AMERICA

TLDR
Pachycephalosaurian phylogeny does not support Asian-North American contiguity throughout the Campanian and Maastrichtian and is indicated to support a single dispersal event from Asia into North America, followed by dispersal of Prenocephale and Tylocephalosaurus into Asia prior to the late Campanian is indicated.

REVISION OF THE DINOSAUR STEGOCERAS LAMBE (ORNITHISCHIA, PACHYCEPHALOSAURIDAE)

TLDR
A parsimonious phylogenetic analysis using 49 characters, which include 9 new cranial characters based on pachycephalosaur frontoparietal domes, now permits a revision of the genus Stegoceras.

The Anatomy and Systematics of Colepiocephale lambei (Dinosauria: Pachycephalosauridae)

TLDR
Re-evaluation of the morphology of C. lambei based on all known material indicates that the posteromedial extension of the parietal is broken off at its base in every specimen, and what was interpreted as the posterior margin of the dome actually is the anterior margins of large supratemporal fenestrae.

The postcranial osteology and phylogenetic position of the small ornithischian dinosaur Changchunsaurus parvus from the Quantou Formation (Cretaceous: Aptian–Cenomanian) of Jilin Province, north‐eastern China

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis finds relationships amongst basal ornithopods to be extremely poorly resolved, but supports a sister-group relationship between Changchunsaurus and Jeholosaurus shangyuanensis and suggests that an endemic clade of small-bodied bipedal ornithipods existed in north-east China during the Early to ‘middle’ Cretaceous.
