Platyceratops, a genus ceratopsian dinosaur, has a notable similarity with the genus Bagaceratops. Some researchers have even suggested that the two genera might be synonyms. The skull of Platyceratops has been noted to be quite a bit bigger than that of Bagaceratops. Future studies on the genus will reveal more.
