The complete skeleton was probably present when in situ, and the missing portions were carried away by the heavy seas, which scoured the foot of the talus for several days, preventing all search for the bones except at low tide. When its discovery was announced in 1917, the disarticulated bones of the skull were lying scattered among the bones of the… Expand
The cranial anatomy of Tenontosaurus tilletti Ostrom, 1970 (Dinosauria, Ornithopoda)
Tenontosaurus tilletti Ostrom, 1970, historically assigned to ‘basal Iguanodontia,’ is a species of bipedal herbivore from the Lower Cretaceous (Aptian–Albian). Previous publications on the anatomyExpand
On the history, osteology, and systematic position of the Wealden (Hastings group) dinosaur Hypselospinus fittoni (Iguanodontia: Styracosterna)
This account documents the past work on the osteology of material that can be attributed to Hypselospinus fittoni and suggests that there is a fundamental split amongst the more derived (clypeodontan) ornithopod ornithischians into the clades Hypsilophodontia and Iguanodontia. Expand
Perinates of a new species of Iguanodon (Ornithischia: Ornithopoda) from the lower Barremian of Galve (Teruel, Spain)
Abstract Although Iguanodon is one of the most abundant and well-known of Europe's dinosaur genera, fossils of young specimens are very rare. Indeed, the fossil record contains very few examples ofExpand

Ornithischian dinosaur remains from the Maortu site in Alashan' occur in three bone bearing horizons; those in the lower two are of advanced iguanodont affinity and those in the upper are veryExpand
The skull of the basal stegosaur Huayangosaurus taibaii and a cladistic diagnosis of stegosauria
Huayangosaurus is the sister-taxon to all other stegosaurs, which have lost premaxillary teeth, reduced the size of the antorbital fossa, increased the length of the prepubic process of the pubis, and lost lateral scute rows along the trunk. Expand
