The authors describe a new assemblage of Late Cretaceous dinosaur and reptile remains from Campanian and Maastrichtian deposits of eastern South Carolina. Six of the fourteen localities include new occurrences of theropod and hadrosaur dinosaurs, substantially increasing the known localities in the eastern United States that have produced dinosaur remains.
The important but seldom-mentioned role that South Carolina played in the early history of studies of North American Cretaceous deposits and faunas is outlined, and the stratigraphic settings of fourteen localities are analyzed. Of the six localities where dinosaur bones were found, two yielded the majority – Stokes Quarry, Darlington County (age equivalent to the mid-Campanian Coachman Formation) and the late Campanian Donoho Creek Formation at Kingstree, Williamsburg County.
