new abelisaurid material

Ben Creisler post about the Cymbospondylus paper by M. Balini and me, reminded 
me of a dinosaur-related paper appeared in the previous issue of the same 
journal , perhaps it has been overlooked;  if not my apologies in advance.

New abelisaurid material from the upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian) of Morocco

Rivista Italiana di Paleontologia e Stratigrafia 117 n.3 (2011)

Abstract: Fragmentary cranial bones of dinosaur origin have been recently 
recovered from the Kem Kem beds (Upper Cretaceous, Cenomanian) of Morocco. They 
include two incompletely preserved maxillary bones evidencing diagnostic 
features of abelisaurid theropods. These new finds provide further evidence of 
Abelisauridae in the Late Cretaceous of Morocco.
