it specifically stating "domes"), and there was a murmur of "Huh?" through
the audience. ;-D Hey, Triassic birds, why not Triassic pachycephalosaurs?

are just missing all the true _dinosaur_ fossils... >>
I've seen one of the domes, and so has Mark Goodwin. His comment was that if
it had been found in Late Cretaceous deposits, he would unhesitatingly refer
it to Pachycephalosauria.
