Here is a little more on the Fruita form, from my English version of the text
of the Gakken article:
The Morrison Formation (top of the Salt Wash Member, late Kimmeridgian, about
152 million years ago) near Fruita, Colorado has, on the other hand, yielded
a nearly perfect right dentary less than 3 cm long (and a corresponding left
maxilla; Figure 14) of a very small ornithischian resembling Echinodon.
Discovered by California paleontologist George Callison, these jaws have not
yet been described (Figure 14 is their first appearance in print); they are
presently considered to belong to the "Fruita fabrosaurid," limb elements of
which were studied by Callison and Helen M. Quimby in 1984.
