You have to be real careful with that book. Greg Paul put alot
of his own theories in there without clearly labeling them as such.
[He also published some taxonomic revisions at the species and
generic level, which by the Code, are properly published, sigh,
and thus binding within a certain range].
Some of the stuff in his book that is questionable, are things
like his placement of Ornitholestes and Megalosauridae (=Torvosauridae).
[Note, these placements *may* turn out to be right, but right
now they look like they are unlikely].
The peace of God be with you.
