As you say, this cannot be, at least not unless the Commission makes
_atherfieldensis_ a conserved name against _mantelli_ - unlikely.

As a matter of fact I have _I. mantelli_ included in _I. anglicum_ in my
dinosaur list.  _I. anglicum_ is dated 1829, three years prior to von
Meyer's description of _I. mantelli_

May the peace of God be with you.         sarima@ix.netcom.com
