New Dinosaurs?

Hi All -

   I just received a copy of the book:

Zhou, S. 2005. The Dinosaur Egg Fossils in Nanyang, China. China University of Geosciences Press, Wuhan, 145 pp.

...and among all the eggs, it mentions (and pictures) mounts of two dinosaurs whose names are unfamiliar: _Bakesaurus_ (no species name given; appears to be an iguanodontian, probably a hadrosaur; other bones referred to as "hadrosaurid" are figured in the book) and _Yunxiansaurus hubei_, a sauropod. Both from the Majiacun Group, Lijiangou, Xichuan Basin. The book also discusses _Nanyangosaurus_ a bit; all the stuff in the book appears to be Late Cretaceous. _Tyrannosaurus luanchuanensis_ also gets mentioned occasionally. Except for the preface, table of contents, and some figure captions, the text is entirely in Chinese, so I have not been able to ferret out references for _Bakesaurus_ or _Yunxiansaurus_ in the book, and Google turns up nothing, either.
