 Stegopeltine? Do you mean "sauropeltine nodosaurid"? >>

Stegopeltinae: new >ankylosaurid< subfamily introduced in Tracy's paper. I 
had a feeling that would arouse a bit of interest... Comprises Stegopelta, 
Glyptodontopelta, and a new genus in press (the San Diego "nodosaurid," which 
is actually an ankylosaurid after all). Tracy also uses Syrmosaurinae as the 
oldest available name for the ankylosaurid subfamily that comprises 
Amtosaurus, Nodocephalosaurus, Pinacosaurus (senior synonym of Syrmosaurus), 
Saichania, Shanxia, Talarurus, Tarchia, and Tianzhenosaurus.
