As per normal, I don't have the complete bibliographic info on me.  It was
in Compte Rendu de l'Academie Sciences, Earth & Planetary Sciences series,
this year.

Don't hold your breath on life restoration: there is only a little bit of
the skeleton known.  We don't know what the skull looks like.  Despite
comments in the text, there is nothing surprising about ceratosaurs in the
Cretaceous: there are ceratosaurs in the latest Creatceous of Europe, India,
and Argentina!
