So did I. Sad situation, eh? And _Utahraptor ostrommaysorum_ was originally
going to be _Utahraptor spielbergi_. And _Tianchisaurus nedegoapeferima_ was
originally going to be _Jurassosaurus nedegoapeferkimorum_. And so on. The
describer is under no obligation to go with names for the material that appear
prior to the description and formal naming.
