Species

Riabininohadros is a genus of hadrosaurid from the Late Cretaceous in Ukraine. Its type species is R. weberae.

Taxonomic history[edit]

It was originally named Orthomerus weberi when first described by Anatoly Nikolaevich Riabinin in 1945 for hindlimb elements from an unnamed Maastrichtian-age formation in Crimea of what is now Ukraine (then a part of the Soviet Union).[1] These were found by G.T. Weber who is honoured in the specific name. As Weber was female Lev Nesov in 1995 emended the name to Orthomerus weberae.[2] Although tossed as a nomen dubium in recent reviews of Hadrosauridae,[3][4] it was given its own genus Riabininohadros ("Riabinin's hadrosaur") by Russian amateur paleontologist Roman Ulansky.[5]
