Interesting, since Ceratopinae (by priority, the correct name for Lambe's
subfamily Chasmosaurinae, which includes the genus _Ceratops_, genotype of the
family Ceratopidae) generally have quite well developed brow horns and
relatively undeveloped nasal horns. The centrosaurines are the ones with the
relatively small, undeveloped brow horns and long nasal horns.
