Sereno (1997, Annual Rev. Earth & Planetary Sci.) refers _Echinodon_ to the
Heterodontosauridae.  He also mentions a very small Early Jurassic
heterodontosaurid from the western U.S. (maybe Kayenta Fm.? he doesn't say)
in the collections of the Musuem of Comparative Zoology, Harvard U.

Valley of the Moon, Ischigualsto-Villa Union Basin, northwest Argentina.
