Abstract

Three aspects of the newly discovered Late Cretaceous, Hungarian dinosaur fauna support its unique status among other European Late Cretaceous faunas. First, its Santonian age differs from almost all other European localities. Second, 90 % of the dinosaur remains are ankylosaur bones. Third, a new nodosaurid ankylosaur and a new rhabdodontid ornithopod have been discovered. The Hungarian fauna differs from those of all other European Upper Cretaceous localities, the most similar appears to be the eastern Austrian fauna from the Early Campanian.
