You can blame this turkey squarely on the publisher, who evidently wanted a
rush job to get something into the bookstores in time for _Jurassic Park_.
There was no time to review or correct anything, certainly no time to put
together a decent book whose original purpose was to have an illustrated entry
for every different dinosaur species (not just the genera). Tracy Ford drew
several hundred illustrations--skeletal restorations of all the good type
specimens of all the species--of which they used (and paid for) only about a
hundred.
