Nasutoceratops, new ceratopsian from Utah,and elasmosaur from Alabama (news stories)

A slew of official news stories are now out about this dinosaur, to be
described in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B on Wednesday. I
hesitated earlier today when the only news stories were in French and
Portuguese. Clearly there is no embargo now.

Here are some links:

However, the name is not strictly new. "Nasutuceratops" (with "u"
instead of the better "o") has been a nomen nudum mentioned in an
abstract and has been briefly described online for a few years.
