Saurolophus is known with confidence from Units 3&4. So far there is no
evidence from historical records or our data for it occurring in Units 1 or
The absence of Saurolophus in Campanian strata argues against the old
suggestion that the Nemegt could be as old as late Campanian.
In terms of hadrosaurs, Unit 1 has so far produced only the hadrosaurine
We are currently unsure how low the stratigraphic range of Hypacrosaurus
goes. It is certainly known from units 3 and 4, but tentative indications
are that it extends down into Unit 2.
The Albertosaurus bonebed (n=13; July 2002) occurs at the very top of Unit

continue to grow as Phil Currie continues to excavate the site. I have yet
to confirm with Phil the current mni tally as of Sept. 2002.
