It may be the same area, but it appears that Hesperosaurus mjosi specimen comes from different level of the Morisson formation and appears to be older than the Stegosaurus specimens. Given the time difference it's unlikely that Hesperosaurus mjosi is the same species as Stegosaurus stenops, as you say. Some paleontologists sink Hesperosaurus into the genus Stegosaurus, but consider it different species than S. stenops - S. mjosi. Anyway, it seems that this is not the opinion held by most specialists, and the majority sees this specimen as separate genus. So, given the fact that I'm not an expert on stegosaurus, I'll go with the current consensus and present this animal as H. mjosi.
Again, original pose and behaviour. Still, I wonder how it would go back on its feet. Yet, animals are far more adaptable as we think. I also like the details on the sand under the see. Really great one !
Yes, some osteoderms here and there wouldn't be so out of place given the phylogeny of these animals. I admit I should have been more consistent in giving my stegosaurs osteoderms though, because some of the taxa I've reconstructed lack them.
Anyway, the smooth sides are also acceptable for the moment, given the fossil evidence, or lack of such in some taxa.
Wonderful scales and osteoderms! I also wish we could find an imprint of a dinosaur lying down, if only because we could have its entire scale texture. Then again we have stranger imprints, like the undersea Jurassic "ditches."
