Proposes a new psittacosaurid, _Psittacosaurus major_. To this observer, it 
seems very close to _P. sibiricus_ in morphology.

The same issue has:
Ryoko Matsumoto, Susan E. Evans, and Makoto Manabe. The choristoderan reptile 
Monjurosuchus from the Early Cretaceous of Japan. Acta
Palaeontologica Polonica 52 (2), 2007:  329-350

More choristodere fun!  And I would be amiss if I didn't point out that Ms. 
Matsumoto was a great help in showing me and others
around Japan as part of the lead up to the Dinosaur Expo 2005. Glad to see her 
work getting out there!
