Horns and Beaks: New taxa and descriptions



Howdy, Ornithischian Fans:

I just received my author?s copy of Horns and Beaks, the last volume in Ken
Carpenter?s IUP series on dinosaurs. As I just entered all that stuff in
Endnote (throwing a few references in some in-progress papers, of course!),
I thought I?d pass it on to the list. A few DML members have papers in here
too!

I don?t have time to write a full synopsis of everything, but I have listed
all of the papers below, with brief notes on any new taxa or notable things
described. A number of new taxa are presented or named here ? some for
previously undescribed material, others for specimens described under other
names.

Brett-Surman, M. K., and J. R. Wagner. 2006. Discussion of character
analysis of the appendicular anatomy in Campanian and Maastrichtian North
American hadrosaurids--variation and ontogeny; pp. 135-169 in K. Carpenter
(ed.), Horns and Beaks: Ceratopsian and Ornithopod Dinosaurs. Indiana
University Press, Bloomington.

The title should be pretty self-explanatory. This will likely be a good
reference for those engaged in working out hadrosaur phylogenies.

Brill, K., and K. Carpenter. 2006. A description of a new ornithopod from
the Lytle Member of the Purgatoire Formation (Lower Cretaceous) and a
reassessment of the skull of Camptosaurus; pp. 49-67 in K. Carpenter (ed.),
Horns and Beaks: Ceratopsian and Ornithopod Dinosaurs. Indiana University
Press, Bloomington.

Describes Theiophytalia kerri, erected for the partial skull YPM 1887, which
is the specimen used by Marsh to restore the skull of Camptosaurus.

185-210 in K. Carpenter (ed.), Horns and Beaks: Ceratopsian and Ornithopod
Dinosaurs. Indiana University Press, Bloomington.

Ken summarizes the history behind ?Bison alticornis,? presenting some
correspondence between Marsh and the discoverers of the specimen. Also, a
nice figure of the Triceratops skull DMNH 48617 is presented.

A nice little review of the history of duckbill discoveries.

chasmosaurine ceratopsid Torosaurus latus; pp. 235-257 in K. Carpenter

Self-explanatory. I?m happy to see this out. :-)

from the Morrison Formation (Upper Jurassic) of the western United States;
pp. 17-47 in K. Carpenter (ed.), Horns and Beaks: Ceratopsian and Ornithopod
Dinosaurs. Indiana University Press, Bloomington.

Reviews and illustrates pretty much all that which is said in the title. A
new genus, Othnielosaurus, is erected for the former Laosaurus consors.

hadrosaur from the Lower Cretaceous Cedar Mountain Formation of eastern
Utah; pp. 79-89 in K. Carpenter (ed.), Horns and Beaks: Ceratopsian and
Ornithopod Dinosaurs. Indiana University Press, Bloomington.

Cedrorestes crichtoni, based on associated postcrania from the top of the
Yellow Cat Member of the Cedar Mountain Formation.

dinosaur Chasmosaurus; pp. 259-317 in K. Carpenter (ed.), Horns and Beaks:
Ceratopsian and Ornithopod Dinosaurs. Indiana University Press, Bloomington.

For the first time, a skeletal reconstruction of Agujaceratops (formerly
Chasmosaurus mariscalensis) based on an associated skeleton. Also,
speculation on growth strategies in this taxon.

Murphy, N. L., D. Trexler, and M. Thompson. 2006. "Leonardo," a mummified
Brachylophosaurus (Ornithischia: Hadrosauridae) from the Judith River
Formation of Montana; pp. 117-133 in K. Carpenter (ed.), Horns and Beaks:
Ceratopsian and Ornithopod Dinosaurs. Indiana University Press, Bloomington.

This answers questions brought up on the list recently, as to whether or not
there were any papers in the works for ?Leonardo.? Data are presented on
presumed stomach contents, along with some nice close-up photos of various
parts of the specimen.

Ott, C. J. 2006. Cranial anatomy and biogeography of the first Leptoceratops
gracilis (Dinosauria: Ornithischia) specimens from the Hell Creek Formation,
southeast Montana; pp. 213-233 in K. Carpenter (ed.), Horns and Beaks:
Ceratopsian and Ornithopod Dinosaurs. Indiana University Press, Bloomington.

Chris presents data from his Master?s thesis, on a very nice partial skull
of Leptoceratops from the Hell Creek Formation. Cool stuff!

gracile iguanodont from the Wealden of England; pp. 69-77 in K. Carpenter

Iguanodon atherfieldensis is renamed Mantellisaurus atherfieldensis.

Brachylophosaurus canadensis from the Late Cretaceous of Montana; pp. 91-115
in K. Carpenter (ed.), Horns and Beaks: Ceratopsian and Ornithopod
Dinosaurs. Indiana University Press, Bloomington.

This represents much of the data from Albert?s master?s thesis (completed at
MSU). Very nicely illustrated.

Documentation of some osteological abnormalities in hadrosaurs, with
comparative data for other dinosaurs.

Ornithopod Dinosaurs. Indiana University Press, Bloomington.

A little project that Darren and I worked up, and presented at SVP a few
years back. In summary, we show that most of those supposed puncture wounds
in squamosals of ceratopsids are not traumatic in nature. Also, we discuss
some other abnormalities found in ceratopsian skulls.
