A “frozen-crested lizard” from Early Jurassic.

The name is a reference to both the freezing conditions under which the fossil remains of a large theropod were extracted on Mount Kirkpatrick in the Queen Alexandra Range, west central Antarctica, and to the unusual ridged, transverse bony crest on the animal’s forehead.

It was originally compared to Elvis Presley’s 1950’s pompadour hair-do. Named by U. S. paleontologists William R. Hammer and Hickerson in 1994.
