A partial skeleton of a species of turkey-sized dinosaur from southeastern Australia. It was found in 2005 in rocks that date to 113 million years old. The tail and footbones can be seen in the fossil and studying these gives scientists more insight into the diversity of small, bipedal herbivorous dinosaurs that once roamed between Australia and Antarctica.

The species is named in honour of the late David Pickering, who was Museums Victoria's Collection Manager in Vertebrate Palaeontology.
