Paleontologists from Canada's Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) discovered the remains of a new species of dinosaur in the Judith River Formation of northern Montana, an ankylosaur that resembles the fictional monster Zuul from the 1984 movie, "Ghostbusters."
(http://dx.doi.org/10.1098/rsos.161086) A paper describing the species was published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, under the title "A new ankylosaurine dinosaur from the Judith River Formation of Montana, USA, based on an exceptional skeleton with soft tissue preservation."
Upham also made reference to taxa otherwise known from the Campanian Judith River

My invitation from Murphy, research director of the Judith River
Dinosaur Institute in Malta, Mont., came late last year.
