First named as a species of Stegoceras, Colepiocephale appears to have been a small genus of pachycephalosaur dinosaur that lived in Canada during the late Cretaceous. Unfortunately Colepiocephale is still only known from a partial skull dome, so the exact size of the living dinosaur is still unknown, but estimated to be around the one meter mark.
