Yes, scanty remains of a hypsilophodont were found at the Ungsmunnarna locality near Lake Ivösjön in northeastern Scania, Sweden. The deposits there are much younger though, most likely late Campanian. Incidentally Bornholm and parts of Scania are just about the only parts of Scandinavia with mesozoic rocks where dinosaurs might occur. There is a small area of Jurassic rocks on Andöya in northern Norway, but as yet no terrestrial vertebrate fossils from there.
