Two probably hypsilophodont teeth have been found this summer in Late
Cretaceous (Late Campanian/Early Maastrichtian) layers near Lake Ivösjön
in northeastern Scania, Sweden.
Since previous Swedish dinosaur records are limited to a few
indeterminate fragments from the same deposits and some Triassic
footprints from the Höganäs area of northwestern Scania I thought this
might be worth reporting. The deposits at Ivösjön are shallow marine,
partly high-energy coastal, deposits and have yielded fair numbers of
plesiosaur and mosasaur bones as well as a few hesperornithids but only
very few dinosaur remains.
There is a short note about the investigations at
http://www.sundweb.com/fossil.htm but it is unfortunately in Swedish.
