Yes, Abelisaurus is only known from an incomplete skull.  Abelisaurs had
short, deep snouts and usually two bull like horns over their eye sockets.
 Very little is known about them because most of the dinosaurs in the group
are known from incomplete skeletons.  The only dinosaurs in this group that I
can say right off the top of my head are Abelisaurus and Carnotaurus.
