HUNT et al 1998 -Reply

Oops - I didn't type what I thought I had typed - too many things going on 
yesterday, including a nice surprise visit by Brent Breithaupt as part of a 
donation, through the BLM, to the Smithsonian of a Green River slab with about 
300 Knightia specimens on it collected by some private collectors. The family 
was real nice. Accompanied by a talk by S.J. Gould as well and it was nice to 
talk with himself again. 

Anyway, what I meant to type was...

a prosauropod and the ornithischians Revueltosaurus collenderi, Technosaurus 
smalli and Lucianosaurus wildi...

I will flog myself as punishment

Woah....  Ralph is this a typo, or have Hunt et al refered Revueltosaurus and
Lucianosaurus to the Prosauropoda?  Last I heard, they were all quite clearly
ornithischians according to them, and also according to my own work....

I know that Sereno has refered parts Technosaurus to prosauropods, though the
premax and its teeth still belong to an ornithischian..

If anyone has access to Geobios, I'd love to see if we could get a ref trade
