Stokesosaurus, a recently discovered and described Utah dinosaur, to date known only from the Cleveland-Lloyd Quarry, has a peculiar ilium (hip bone) that exhibits a small, vertical ridge at midlength of the outer surface. Sometimes a single character, such as this, is the only clue to the identity of a particular dinosaur, which allows scientists to separate it from other similar types.
