Since their discovery in the 1920s, the affinity of asymmetric, elongated dinosaur eggs from the Late Cretaceous of Mongolian has been controversial, with previous hypotheses supporting either a ceratopsian or maniraptoran affinity. Recent technical advancements in palaeontology provide a novel approach to diagnose maniraptoran eggs, and the discovery of soft ceratopsian eggs makes the controversy a timely issue worth revisiting. Here, we analysed Protoceratopsidovum eggshell from southern Mongolia with electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and the...
