How is *Thescelosaurus* polyphyletic?  Well, the story is, a good deal of
material has been assigned to *T. neglectus* over the years that may or
may not actually belong there.  Again, restudy is needed.  As for *T.
garbanii*, it's probably a specimen of *Bugenasaura* (although it has
been suggested it pertains to *Stygimoloch*).-*Thescelosaurus*
