Xu et al have described a new iguanodontid from China, Nanyangosaurus zhugeii. This is the same one mentioned in an poster at last years SVP (I think it was a poster, abstract for sure). Known elements are a few dorsals, sacrals, caudals, front and hind limbs.

I have an entry for a hadrosaurid named Nanyoungosaurus from the Late Cretaceous of China, which is in all probability the same specimen.  Anyone have more information related to when and where this name first appeared?
