Although Aletopelta and Saurolophus morrisi pride as the first dinosaur species described from California, the discovery of Saurolophus on the Pacific Coast raises questions about how far Saurolophus ranged across the western US, because Saurolophus osborni is known only from Canada and no Saurolophus-like forms have yet been found in the rocks of identical age to the Moreno Formation. Since it's clear that dinosaurs inhabited Baja California and Coahuila Province in Mexico during the Late Cretaeous, would it be reasonable to assume that Saurolophus morrisi may have drifted out to sea from Baja California?
