The history of discovery and interpretation of several dinosaurs collected from quarries near the town of Hastings during the latter half of the 19th century is more complicated than it should be. Samuel Husbands Beckles and Charles Dawson collected several large ornithopod skeletons from this area, but just a few bones from these skeletons were subsequently described and interpreted (principally) by Richard Owen and Richard Lydekker. All these specimens merited recognition because they had the… Expand
A new hadrosauriform dinosaur from the Wessex Formation, Wealden Group (Early Cretaceous), of the Isle of Wight, southern England
A new genus and species of non-hadrosaurid hadrosauriform dinosaur, Brighstoneus simmondsi gen. et sp. nov., is described from the Lower Cretaceous Wessex Formation of the Isle of Wight. The newExpand
Anatomy, taphonomy, and phylogenetic implications of a new specimen of Eolambia caroljonesa (Dinosauria: Ornithopoda) from the Cedar Mountain Formation, Utah, USA
TLDR
A recently discovered associated partial postcranial skeleton of a large Eolambia caroljonesa is described, providing new anatomical data regarding the vertebral column and pelvic girdle and revealing new information on growth history in a basal hadrosauromorph. Expand
The Venice specimen of Ouranosaurus nigeriensis (Dinosauria, Ornithopoda)
TLDR
Osteohistological analysis of some long bones, a rib and a dorsal neural spine reveals that the Venice specimen is a sub-adult; this conclusion is supported by somatic evidence of immaturity. Expand
Insight on the anatomy, systematic relationships, and age of the Early Cretaceous ankylopollexian dinosaur Dakotadon lakotaensis
TLDR
This study reviews previously proposed diagnoses for this taxon, identifies two autapomorphies, and provides an extensive differential diagnosis of D. lakotaensis, a basal ankylopollexian from the Lakota Formation of South Dakota that is more closely related to taxa from the Early Cretaceous than to more basally situated taxA from the Jurassic. Expand
A new iguanodontian (Dinosauria: Ornithopoda) from the Early Cretaceous of Mongolia
TLDR
Differences in morphology and results of the phylogenetic analyses support their distinction although more specimens of both species will allow better refinement of their uniqueness. Expand
Individual variation in the postcranial skeleton of the Early Cretaceous Iguanodon bernissartensis (Dinosauria: Ornithopoda)
TLDR
A study combining both morphometric and visual analyses of the postcranial skeleton of the Bernissart specimens found significant individual variation in the morphology of the axis, sacrum, caudal vertebrae, scapula, humerus, pollex, ilium, ischium, femur, and tibia. Expand
A new hadrosauroid (Dinosauria: Ornithopoda) from the Late Cretaceous Baynshire Formation of the Gobi Desert (Mongolia)
TLDR
A new genus and species of non-hadrosaurid hadrosauroid, Gobihadros mongoliensis, is described from a virtually complete and undeformed skull and postcranial skeleton collected from the Baynshire Formation of the central and eastern Gobi Desert, Mongolia. Expand
English Wealden fossils: an update
Abstract The non-marine Wealden succession of southern England contains a great variety of fossils, new finds of which continue to reveal novel insights into the animals and plants that inhabitedExpand
Systematics and Paleobiology of a New Articulated Axial Specimen Referred to Iguanodon cf. Galvensis (Ornithopoda, Iguanodontoidea)
ABSTRACT The early Barremian Iberian ornithopod Iguanodon galvensis was described for the first time in 2015. However, much of its anatomy, such as the axial skeleton in mature specimens, remainsExpand
New information on ornithopod dinosaurs from the Late Jurassic of Portugal
Ornithopods are one of the most speciose group of herbivorous dinosaurs, rising during the Jurassic and getting extinct at the Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary. However, most of the attention has beenExpand

On the taxonomy and diversity of Wealden iguanodontian dinosaurs (Ornithischia: Ornithopoda)
TLDR
The taxonomy of Wealden-aged iguanodontians is reviewed in the light of recent publications that indicate higher levels of taxonomic diversity existed compared to estimates from the recent past, and some inconsistency in the maintenance of standards associated with good taxonomic practice is suggested.

Anatomy and Relationships of Gilmoreosaurus mongoliensis (Dinosauria: Hadrosauroidea) from the Late Cretaceous of Central Asia
TLDR
The osteology of the hadrosauroid dinosaur Gilmoreosaurus mongoliensis is redescribed in detail based on the disarticulated cranial and postcranial elements of at least four individuals, placing it closer to Telmatosaurus transsylvanicus than to Bactrosaurus johnsoni. Expand

ANATOMY AND RELATIONSHIPS OF LAMBEOSAURUS MAGNICRISTATUS, A CRESTED HADROSAURID DINOSAUR (ORNITHISCHIA) FROM THE DINOSAUR PARK FORMATION, ALBERTA
TLDR
The first detailed description of the lambeosaurine Lambeosaurus magnicristatus confirms that it is a distinct taxon characterized by its comparatively enormous cranial crest, formed predominantly by the caudodorsal process of the premaxilla, and an acute crest-snout angle. Expand
Osteology and phylogeny of Zalmoxes (n. g.), an unusual Euornithopod dinosaur from the latest Cretaceous of Romania
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of basal euornithopods indicates that the non‐hadrosaurid material from Hateg comprises two distinct, but congeneric, species, and indicates the recognition of a ghost lineage, extending from the most recent common ancestor of Rhabdodontidae and Iguanodontia, which extends for 73 million years.

The Lower Jurassic ornithischian dinosaur Heterodontosaurus tucki Crompton & Charig, 1962: cranial anatomy, functional morphology, taxonomy, and relationships
TLDR
Details of the cranial anatomy are revealed and show that the skull is unexpectedly specialized in such an early representative of the Ornithischia, including the closely packed, hypsodont crowns and ‘warping’ of the occlusal surfaces seen in the cheek dentition and jaw musculature. Expand

On Asian ornithopods (Dinosauria: Ornithischia). 4. Probactrosaurus Rozhdestvensky, 1966
TLDR
Systematic analysis suggests that P. gobiensis is a derived non-hadrosaurid iguanodontian ornithopod and the basal sister-taxon to the clade Hadrosauridae, and Probactrosaurus alashanicus is considered to be a junior subjective synonym of P. Gobiensis. Expand
