Dacentrurus armatus by EmperorDinobot Dacentrurus armatus by EmperorDinobot
Dacentrurus is one of those wastebasket taxons whose remains are known from all around Europe, and yet no one can truly pin it down, but lots of new good material does exist. It was a basal stegosaur that may or may not have been bigger than Stegosaurus itself. While basal, it was a late survivor that lived into the final days of the Jurassic Period.

The detail on this one is outstanding! I like the spines protruding from the shoulder blades of these stegosaurs, very weird. Is this an Asian dinosaur? I think I recall reading about it, though I could be confused with something else.

Dacentrurus is European. I uh, think I wrote it up there. Remains from it have been found from Germany, to France, to Spain and Portugal. None of them are well preserved or complete. But we KNOW The shoulder spike was there :giggle: we HAVE the technology.

Ah, European... I knew that, I read it, I was just... testing you. =D It's just that I saw something on weird Asian dinosaurs, one being very similar to this (with the shoulder spike).

It was publicized recently that Tuojiangosaurus had a shoulder spike...

This guy was huge - too bad there isn't enough decent skeletal material to reconstruct it completely...

I just can't imagine a stegosaur BIGGER than Stegosaurus itself...
