Antarctopelta is the 2nd named dinosaur from Antarctica.

Also, only the second ankylosaur to be named from the Southern Hemisphere. _Antarctopelta_ is weird, with a mosaic of nodosaurid and ankylosaurid characters. The same has been said for _Minmi_, from Australia. Both _Antarctopelta_ and _Minmi_ were quite small, but there's no evidence (either way) that the two were closely related.
