Dinosaur Genera List corrections #52
Today's publication of the theropod material from Morocco in _Science_
by Sereno et al et al et al... adds one new genus to the list with the
description of _Deltadromeus agilis_, a slender-limbed theropod about
25 feet (8 meters) long. My copy of _Science_ hasn't arrived yet, so
I've had to rely on newspaper accounts of the work. Nice photo of the
reconstructed skull of _Carcharodontosaurus_ was printed in today's
All newspaper accounts that I've seen spell the name _Deltadromeus_;
but Tom Holtz's recent post has it _Deltadromaeus_. Right now the
former spelling is the one I'll use, but it may be incorrect. If so,
I'll post another correction(!).
So add the following:
Deltadromeus Sereno, Duthiel, Iarochene, Larsson, Lyon, Magwene,
Sidor, Varricchio & Wilson, 1996
to the list. Genera count goes up to 788.
This is the first genus >>not included<< in the Dinosaur Genera List
shipping this week as part of _Dinosaur Folios_ #1. Not bad: Out of
date the very day of publication.
