Zuniceratops christopheri

Zuniceratops is a Neoceratosian, not a real Ceratopsidae. It is the oldest Browhorned ceratopsian to this date and the oldest named american ceratopsian. Zuniceratops had prominent brow horns, but no nasal horn. Compared to the real Ceratopsidae it is relatively lightly build, yet it is bigger than its other Neoceratopsian relatives.
