Asia x Gondwana



And about Opisthocoelicaudia? It's conitnuously stated that it had Gondwanan
conections. But how?
1) Did They come from South America through North America? (perhaps like
Mononykus?)
2) Or has some Gondwanan block from Australia merged into South Asia?
 ( I've read an old article in Nature about a continent Pacifica, whose
fragments would be gone to North America, South America and Asia...was this
idea abandoned?)
