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?
