Abstract. The ankylosaurine Pinacosaurus is one of the best known ankylosaur to date in terms of the number and preservational quality of specimens. Juvenile to sub-adult postcrania collected by the Soviet-Mongolian Paleontological Expedition from the Upper Cretaceous Alagteeg Formation at Alag Teeg, Mongolia can be assigned to Pinacosaurus grangeri based on discrete cranial characters. One individual is significantly larger than the others and demonstrates delayed fusion of postcranial… 
A new ankylosaurid skeleton from the Upper Cretaceous Baruungoyot Formation of Mongolia: its implications for ankylosaurid postcranial evolution
A new articulated postcranial specimen of an indeterminate ankylosaurid dinosaur from the Upper Cretaceous (middle-upper Campanian) Baruungoyot Formation from Hermiin Tsav, southern Gobi Desert,
The first oviraptorosaur (Dinosauria: Theropoda) bonebed: evidence of gregarious behaviour in a maniraptoran theropod
TLDR
The Avimimus bonebed is the first evidence of gregarious behaviour in oviraptorosaurs, and highlights a potential trend of increasing gregiousness in dinosaurs towards the end of the Mesozoic.
An unusual new sauropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of Mongolia
TLDR
The preferred phylogenetic analysis places Abdarainurus as a basal titanosaurian sauropod, but this result could be affected by inadequate knowledge of basal titanosaurs.
Osteology and Taxonomy of British Wealden Supergroup (Berriasian–Aptian) Ankylosaurs (Ornithischia, Ankylosauria)
ABSTRACT Ankylosaurs, dinosaurs possessing extensive body armor, were significant components of terrestrial ecosystems from the Middle Jurassic–latest Cretaceous. They diversified during the Early
Systematics, phylogeny and palaeobiogeography of the ankylosaurid dinosaurs
TLDR
The revised phylogenetic analysis resulted in a monophyletic Ankylosauridae consisting of Ahshislepelta, Aletopelta, Gastonia, Gobisaurus, Liaoningosaurus, Shamosaurus and a suite of derived ankylosaurusids (Ankylosurinae).

Pentadactyl ankylosaurian manus tracks from the Lower Cretaceous of Galve (Teruel, Spain): first occurrence of Tetrapodosaurus in the Iberian Peninsula
AbstractIntroductionThis work is a detailed description of ankylosaurian natural casts found in Galve (Teruel, Spain), with the identification and classification of the major dynamic and static
New protoceratopsid specimens improve the age correlation of the Upper Cretaceous Gobi Desert strata
New protoceratopsid (Dinosauria: Ceratopsia) specimens from two Late Cretaceous Mongolian localities with problematic stratigraphy are described. A specimen of Protoceratops andrewsi from the Zamyn
Birdlike growth and mixed-age flocks in avimimids (Theropoda, Oviraptorosauria)
TLDR
The combination of adults and juveniles in the Iren Dabasu bonebed assemblage provides evidence of mixed-age flocking in avimimids and the onset of fusion in young individuals suggests that some of the individuals in the Nemegt Formation bonebed may have been juveniles.

A Redescription of the Ankylosaurid Dinosaur Dyoplosaurus acutosquameus Parks, 1924 (Ornithischia: Ankylosauria) and a Revision of the Genus
TLDR
It is possible that the fragmentary nature of the holotype of Euoplocephalus leads to the inference that the diversity of Late Cretaceous North American ankylosaurids is lower than it actually is, and it might be necessary to look beyond traditional cranial characters in order to accurately appraise the number and nature of various ankylassaurid taxa.
A redescription of the skull of Euoplocephalus tutus (Archosauria: Ornithischia): a foundation for comparative and systematic studies of ankylosaurian dinosaurs
TLDR
A relative abundance of more recently collected and prepared cranial material attributable to Euoplocephalus enables a reappraisal of this taxon (including the type specimen), and permits it to be employed as a morphological representative of the clade.
