In Britain it's Ceratopia, pretty much (after all, it was British--and
German--nomenclaturists who originally pointed out this error), though there
seem to be a few pockets of resistance. In the United States and Canada it's
still Ceratopsia, by a wide margin. "Prevailing usage," etc. Not to mention
major monographs with "Ceratopsia" in their titles as well as innumerable
papers.
