Re: New member of the list/hadrosaurs

Bom dia, Joao,
as far as I know, the only Gondwanan hadrosaurs are those from the
Campanian-Maastrichtian of Argentina and I think that it is unlike that
hadros originated in the Gondwana. 
What I would like to know is whether the last discoveries and phylogenetic
analyses point to an Asian or North American origin. The most recent data I
have are from the paper on Protohadros by J. Head but I know that
everything changed again in the last year (new stuff in Japan?). I need
fresh info and the signalation of recent papers on the subject.
Thank you (obrigado)

North AMerican Alamosaurus seems to be an immigrant from South America,
where Titanosaurs were common. Marsupials and archaic placentals seems to
have reached South America during Late Cretaceous, so it's not impossible to
propose tha same path to Hadrosaurs.
