     As far as I know, these are the only other ceratopsids that where found outside of North America

None of the above animals are ceratopsids in a strict sense.

It is important to note that "ceratopsid" refers specifically to the clade "Ceratopsidae", of which protoceratopsids (Protoceratopsidae) are not part.

Thanks to Alessandro Marisa for such an informative answer.
