Not me.  However, a British graduate student is redescribing the Stonesfield
Quarry and other specimens of Megalosaurus.  Preliminary work shows it to be
a distinct genus, of which a fair portion of the anatomy is preserved.
When her work is published, Megalosaurus will probably be one of the best
described Middle Jurassic theropods (but when your competition is
Monolophosaurus, Piatnitzkysaurus, Eustreptospondylus, Gasosaurus, and
Poekilopleuron, it isn't that hard).
