Number of dinos that ever existed?



I'm posting this request for a dino-loving colleague at Astronomy magazine:

"I imagine that paleontologists know of a few hundred (maybe a few
thousand) dino species from fossils. But how many dino species do they
estimate actually existed during the Mesozoic? I imagine it must be a very
large number, but do any of you know how large?"
