Sinoceratops


Apart from a drive-by illustration, I never really mentioned Sinoceratops although it was an important discovery. The Late Certaceous faunas of North America and eastern Asia were very similar indeed, though generally with one major exception: there were no derived ceratopsians in Asia. Well, not until the centrosaurine Sinoceratops turned up and rather completed the set of things like hadrosaurines, pachycephaosaurs, oviraptorosaurs, tyrannosaurines, parvicursorines, dromaeosaurs and the rest.

Anyway, above there is the upper part of the skull and the posterior part of the frill. Below is a  reconstructed skeleton of the beast on display.
