A. Prieto-Márquez and C. I. Serrano Brañas 2012Saurolophine hadrosaurid that differs from other members of the clade, except Gryposaurus, in possessing a deep and arcuate dorsal process of the nasal; differs from Gryposaurus, as well as form all other saurolophines, in having a broader narial foramen, as well as anterodorsally curved deltoid crest of the scapula (convergent with Lambeosaurinae within the context of Hadrosauridae).
