RE: Palaeoscincus



Palaeoscincus costatus (the holotype) is based on a single tooth, which is indeterminate relative to Edmontonia rugosidens and E. longiceps, so is a nomen dubium. These taxa lacked tail clubs. The historical restorations of Paleoscincus were based on a specimen now referred to E. rugosidens.
P. latus is a possible pachycephalosaur (probably also a nomen dubium) and P. asper is a junior synonym of Euoplocephalus tutus.

HI:
 I was wondering if Palaeoscincus is a valid taxon? if so did it have a
clubbed tail?
