Do you know if the Lance Formation biodiversity was similar to this? I imagine it would be, as many of the Hell Creek dinosaurs are found there.

Yes, I'd imagine many of these species would likely be present at Lance as well, give or take a few due to habitat etc.

Ah, I thought so. How would it differ? As Lance Formation is a subtropical coastal plain.

IIRC Lance was on the shore of the WIS, so you'd expect the marine species such as Belanstomas and several of the cartilaginous fish may have been more common there, while some of the freshwater species could have been scarcer. There also may have been brackish water species, and more marine species that would appear at Lance but not HC.
Of course, this is all conjecture, I haven't read any statistics.

Are you thinking of drawing mesozoic fish from other regions?

Probably not for a while if I do, I have other projects which take priority.
