New Antarctic theropod

Yes, the new one is _Cryolophosaurus_ellito_ or "frozen crested reptile." 

According to the Associated Press release by Paul Recer, it was first 
extracted in 1991 by William Hammer and crew from Augustana College in 
Rock Island, Illinois. The critter was about 25 feet long and looked 
similar to _Allosaurus_ except for the bony crest along the top of its head.
