 Hard to say. The presence of a possible nodosaur in
the Tsagayan suggests a near coastal environment, but
there is also possible sauropod material, and a far
greater variety of hadrosaurs than in the lower, near
marine, Horseshoe Canyon. Or in the upper Xingezhuang,
of probable Nemegtian age.

 A few possible Hell Creek lambeosaur specimens were
mentioned in The Dinosaria long before Boyd's work.
