Re: Albertosaurus

>G.O. said in an early post that Albertosaurus had been renamed Dinotyrannus
(??).  does any one have details and a reference on this please.

Albertosaurus has NOT been renamed Dinotyrannus.  George has suggested that
the specimen from the Lancian, called ?Albertosaurus megagracilis by Greg
Paul, was a distinct genus.  So far, the only publication with Dinotyrannus
has been Olshevsky & Ford's 1995 article in volume 10 of Kyoryugaku
Saizensen, but I know that they are planning an American release.
