Dinosaur Genera List corrections #5



This correction stems from an old way I had of designating _nomina nuda_ in
my list. Chinese paleontologist Zhao Xijin (also known as Chao Shichin)
published two papers (1983, 1986) in which he used several generic (and
specific) names without descriptions, asserting that the descriptions were in
press. A few of the genera (and species) even have illustrated specimens. But
those promised descriptions have still not appeared, and until they do, the
following genera should be marked as [nomen nudum]:

Changdusaurus
Chinshakiangosaurus
Dachungosaurus
Damalasaurus
Lancangjiangosaurus
Megacervixosaurus
Microdontosaurus
Ngexisaurus
