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.
