I'm pretty sure that there is a little evidence for ankylosaurs. In the early
'80s, we got a scute from the Tombigbee Sand Member of the Eutaw Formation
(late Santonian/earliest Campanian) that looked an awful lot like ankylosaur
to me (admittedly, this is terribly fragmentary evidence). The material has
not been described.
