It is my understanding that D. potens ( RE the Arundel) is both a nomen
dubium and the genus Dryptosuarus is a Late Cretaceous form better known from
the Late K of New Jersey. Interestingly, Gilmore (I believe but I will have
to double check) renamed D. potens to "Creosaurus potens" ,
The whole taxonomic story of this thing is a bit confusing so before I say
any more, I want to recheck my refs before I get blasted by somebody ;-)
