Dinosaurs from the location of Gilchins vertebrates of the late Mesozoic era (Russia, Amur region)

Currently there are six locations of Cretaceous continental fauna and flora in Amur region: Blagoveshchensk, Kundur and Astashikha, Gilchin, Dim, Bureinsky Belogory. Gilchin is the location of the Cretaceous dinosaurs, the potential of which still requires evaluation. The article provides new information about the history of its discovery, as well as the description of the fossils from the Gilchin collection presented in the exposition of the Paleontological Museum of the Amur Scientific Center of the Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The fauna of Gilchin, established by fossil bone remains, includes hadrosaurs, carnivorous dinosaurs, a dinosaur whose identity it is difficult to determine, and turtles (Trionychidae indet). Most of the definable bone remains of the collection belong to the hadrosaurs. In terms of preservation, the fossil material is close to that of the Chinese locations of Ulaga and Jiayin  / Longu Shan. The article assumes similarity of the genesis of the locations of Gilchin and Jiayin  / Longu Shan (China).
