Well, I found their clastic analysis interesting, but I do have a
sedimentological background as well as a paleontological one... :-)
And their cladistic analysis looked *damned* familiar (it being a slightly
edited version of mine). For those who haven't seen the paper yet: the
results of the phylogeny are the same as mine, with _Baryonyx_ inserted
between _Megalosaurus_ and Avetheropoda (which they call Neotetanurae).
I am VERY glad to see this paper when I did: it's recoding time!!
