ANTARCTIC ?DRYOSAURIDS



In 1991 Hooker et al. reported an ornithopod skeleton from Upper 
Cretaceous rocks of Vega Island, west Antarctica. They determined 
that the animal was a 'hypsilophodont' of some sort and noted 
similarities to dryosaurids _Dryosaurus_ and _Valdosaurus_ (can't 
remember if they then mentioned the fact that dryosaurids are 
iguanodontians). The restored animal was featured on a 1991 stamp for 
the British Antarctic Territories. 

Question is... has anything further been published on this dinosaur?
