STEGOCERAS VALIDUM
"Strong Roof Horn"
Lambe, 1902
Length: 2m (6.6ft)
Weight: 68kg (150lbs.)
Location: Alberta, Canada
Era: Campanian age, upper Cretaceous (75 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Ornithischia
Cerapoda
Marginocephalia
Pachycephalosauria
Pachycephalosauridae

Notes:
The first Pachycephalosaur known from reasonably complete remains. When it was first discovered, deprived of the context of its relatives, Stegoceras was something of an anomaly, considered perhaps to be a very unusual, thick skulled Ornithopod.

Synonyms:
Ornatotholus browni Wall & Galton, 1979

The stripes look like wishbones and islands and it looks pretty bizarre on a Pachy of any kind.
