Now, there's a few anatomical issues, most importantly is that you drew the lower leg shorter than the upper leg; while in other hadrosaurs this was common, in Tethyshadros the upper leg was shorter than the lower leg.

Also it has fingers on the hand. I suppose most people don't think they had them anymore, according to all recent hadrosaur images

Wow!
For the truth Tethyshadros is not a recent discovery, paleontologists founds his rests approximately ten years ago.
Anyway it was discovered this year by Fabio Marco Dalla Vecchia. :)
It is a beautiful and important animal, an honor for the italian paleontolgy.
And soon a new Jurassic theropod... :)

Figured as much. I know just how long the process is but I was in pop-science blog mode when I wrote this. I may actually do a post about that, most people don't even consider the lead time a discovery like this gets.
