    South American Ceratopsians and Ankylosaurs?

    I've been looking up South American dinosaurs lately for curiosity, and I'm wondering, are there any ceratopsians, ankylosaurs / armored dinosaurs, or dome-heads? The only thing I could find are an extreme amount of sauropods (obviously) and an unconfirmed ceratopsian that only consists of a jaw bone.

    There are no definite ceratopsians or pachycephalosaurs from the Southern Hemisphere. There is at least one ankylosaur known from South America, but it has not been given a name.

    Thanks a lot! I'm also wondering about small herbivores, since it seems that there are rarely any. Gasparinisaura is the only one I really know, but is there any ornithomimids in south america? (Something like a galimimus, struthiomimus, etc.)

    Ornithomimids were also restricted to the Northern Hemisphere. Most small herbivorous dinosaurs of Mesozoic South America appear to be ornithopods (Gasparinisaura, Anabisetia, Notohypsilophodon) or more basal ornithischians (Laquintasaura, Manidens). However, there was at least one strange herbivorous theropod.
