To these you might want to add _Taveirosaurus_, a small ornithischian
(pachycephalosaur?) based on tiny teeth from Portugal;
_Micropachycephalosaurus_; _Wannanosaurus_; and an as yet undescribed very
small pachycephalosaur ("Microcephale") from western North America.
Interesting that a lot of these are pachycephalosaurs. _Psittacosaurus_
individuals are also pretty small. I saw one that a dealer had that was only
about 2 feet long without tail.
What I'm interested in, however, are dinos in the _Archaeopteryx_ size range.
