Re: Mystery Ceratopsian

In the PBS series "The Dinosaurs" there is a scene where
they show an animation of a strange ceratopsian a bit like
Pachyrhinosaurus but with a single, huge horn nearly as 
massive as the rest of its head!  I can find no reference
to this creature in any book of dinosaurs, and I wondered
if anyone knew what genus this dinosaur is?

Not having access to this series makes my guess only tentative.  The 
genera _Centrosaurus_ and _Styracosaurus_ both have very large nasal 
horns.  Perhaps it was one of these?
