Re: Avasaurus



George:

    You are correct, I did mean _Brachyceratops_  (I probably was
cross-pollenating the name with that large Morroccan sauropod [known only
from footprints] - _Brevaparapus_ (I know I probably spelled that wrong
too - sorry - it's late)).

    I have seen the other ceratopsians, and I think that Jack felt they
really were unique species, rather than the series he originally thought.

    Thanks,
        Allan Edels
