pecies

"Eobaatar hispanicus"

This species was named by Hahn G. and Hahn R. in 1992. Remains consisting of a single tooth were found in Hauterivian - Barremian (Lower Cretaceous)-age strata of Galve, Spain.

"Eobaatar magnus"

This species was named by Kielan-Jaworowska Z., Dashzeveg D. and Trofimov B.A. in 1987. It is based on a fragment of lower jaw with teeth found in Aptian or Albian (Lower Cretaceous) strata of the Khoboor beds in Guchin Us County, Mongolia.

"Eobaatar minor"

This species was also named by Kielan-Jaworowska Z., Dashzeveg D. and Trofimov B.A. in 1987. Remains were found in Lower Cretaceous strata of Mongolia. Going by the species name, it was probably relatively small.

"Eobaatar pajaronensis"

This species was named by Hahn G. and Hahn R. in 2001. Remains were discovered in Barremian (Lower Cretaceous) strata of Ple pajaron in Spain.
