Dinosaur Genera List corrections #93

Gilles Cuny was kind enough to complete the citations for the _Nature_
articles in my previous DGL correction:

"I have received Nature yesterday and I can give you the complete
reference of the 2 papers:

And Jerry Harris has notified me of an as-yet-undescribed genus whose name
appeared in print in Robert Bakker's article in the 1997 Dinofest volume
(right under my nose):

"Beelemodon" Bakker, 1997 [nomen nudum]

I'm leaving it in quotation marks and not italicized, as published. The
material, from Como Bluff, includes distinctive teeth and perhaps skeletal
elements, of an "omnivorouscarnivorous [sic]" dinosaur with a body
approximately "coyote-to-wolf size."

Complete citation is:

Bakker, R. T., 1997. "Raptor family values: Allosaur parents brought giant
carcasses into their lair to feed their young," in Wolberg, D. L., Stump, E. &
Rosenberg, G. D.,. eds., _Dinofest(TM) International: Proceedings of a
Symposium sponsored by Arizona State University_, Academy of Natural Sciences,
Philadelphia: 51-63.

"Beelemodon" becomes name #828 in the Dinosaur Genera List.
