Tafilalt is the oasis in southeastern Morocco. Er Rachidia is the
capital. Sorry, don't know the exact locale -- possibly it's a
former L.E. outpost -- you might want to check with them!
> Barun Goyot Formation, Khuren Dukh, Gobi desert, MONGOLIA
It's in Khulsan, which is in the Eastern portion of the Negemt basin.
I'm sure there's a map in Dinosaurs of the Flaming Cliffs (don't have
my copy handy).

Sorry. Never heard of it. I know there's a Kysyl in Siberia,

Siamotyrannus was found in Phu Wiang Park in the Khon Kaen province
of Isan, the traditional name for the tribes living in what is
now Thailand's northeast area. It's a big region but can basically
be described as an arid plateau with rolling hills. Arid, yes, but
the great Mekong also banks upon the north border of Thailand.

The Southern-most part of South America, comprising southern
Chile and southern Argentina, including Tierra de Fuego. Cold steppe
and the spurs of the Andes: mostly untouched (for now) by man.
