> What is the etymology of "Jeholo-"?

"Jehol" is the old geographical name for western Liaoning and northern Hebei in
China, and the fossil organisms found in this region are referred to as the
"Jehol biota."  _Jeholosaurus_, a small ornithopod dinosaur from the Liaoning
province, also sports this suffix.
