[N] 2003 Duck-billed dinosaur from Eastern Europe
An isolated maxillary tooth and opisthocoelous anterior thoracic or posterior cervical vertebral centrum of a duck-billed dinosaur, Hadrosauroidea indet., are described. These parts originate from the marine Albian-Cenomanian deposits of the Stoilo iron ore quarry near the town of Staryi Oskol, Belgorod Region. This is the oldest record of a hadrosauroid dinosaur in Eastern Europe and one of the oldest representatives of this group in the world.
