I think it's a safe bet that this is *Charonosaurus*. Not only is the specific
the name is little more than a translation -- as I pointed out when
*Charonosaurus* was mentioned
onlist for the first time, Heilongjiang ( = Chinese side of the Amur, just
where *Charonosaurus* was
found) means Black Dragon River; Charon is the one who brings the shadows of
the dead across another
dark river, Acheron or Styx (I forgot). IMHO it's the same joke as
*Stygivenator* and *Stygimoloch*
from Hell Creek.

*Ingenia* 2100 -- 2500 km away from home? Quite a range extension.
