Elginia was a pareiasaur. It was named for the area around Elgin in Scotland, which has yielded many fossils referred to as the Elgin Reptiles. Elginia was a dwarf genus of pareiasaur, only about 60 centimetres long, with fossils found at Elgin in Scotland and China; the type species, E. mirabilis, is known only from a single skull, about 15 cm long, coarsely sculptured, armed with a number of paired bosses or spines, with the longest pair growing out of the back of the skull. These spikes were used for display rather than physical combat; the upper jaw bears 12 pairs of each with 9 or 10 cusps. The teeth are constricted at the base and serrated at the crown; as with many pareiasaurs, precise phylogenetic placement is uncertain. Elginia shares with Scutosaurus elaborate cranial ornament, used to suggest the two were related. Elginia has been hypothesized to share a relationship with the more basal taxon Dolichopareia on the basis of a notched skull table shared with the latter, however other authors have argued that this association was based on taphonomic distortion.
Cladistic analyses have tended to nest Elginia deeper among pareiasaurs, making it more derived than the earlier giant Pareiasaurus and Scutosaurus. The placement of Elginia remains volatile, with the taxon hopping between more apical pareiasaurs such as Therischian and more basal pareiasaurs such as Scutosaurus and pumiliopareiasaurs.

Port Elgin, New Brunswick
Port Elgin is a Canadian village in Westmorland County, New Brunswick. It is located near the Nova Scotia border at the mouth of the Gaspereaux River where it empties into Baie Verte of the Northumberland Strait; the village was founded by Acadians in 1690, but abandoned after the Expulsion of the Acadians in 1755. The earthworks of Fort Gaspareaux, a French military fortification from the Seven Years' War are located at the mouth of the river east of the village. Following the Seven Years' War and the American Revolutionary War, British Loyalists resettled in the area, named Gaspareaux Town. Gaspareaux Town was renamed Port Elgin in 1847 in honour of Lord Elgin; the community was incorporated as the first community in the province to do so. Throughout the 19th century and first half of the 20th century, Port Elgin experienced modest industrialization with a handful of small factories and sawmills; the village saw some shipping activity with several wharves on a sheltered harbour at the mouth of the Gaspereau River.
The New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island Railway was built through the village in the early 1880s, opening on September 9, 1886 to connect the Intercolonial Railway at Sackville with the seasonal port of Cape Tormentine which supported the winter iceboat service to Prince Edward Island. E. I. Automobile traffic increased through the village in the 1920s after the P. E. I. Ferries began to carry road vehicles; the Baie Verte Road ran west of the village through Baie Verte as "Main Street" and the Immigrant Road ran east of the village. In the 1960s a bypass for Route 16 as a result of Trans-Canada Highway project funding was constructed around Baie Verte and Port Elgin; the largest employer in the village is Atlantic Windows. The second largest employer is Westford Nursing Home, which has about 30 full and part-time staff and provides permanent care facility for 29 persons as well as one relief-care bed; the village has a single school, Port Elgin Regional School, which provides public schooling for grades K-8.
The village had its own high school but this was closed in the 1990s and high school students are now bused to Tantramar Regional High School in Sackville. On January 2, 2010, the village experienced coastal flooding as a result of a storm surge from a nor'easter lifted cottages off their foundations and led to considerable damage to homes, forcing the declaration of a state of emergency in the village and surrounding area; the damage incurred by this storm is thought to be in the area of $900,000. A second coastal flooding event occurred on December 21, 2010, when another storm surge from a nor'easter flooded sections of the village and surrounding area.
