More on Rahona, and introducing Shuuvia
For those who want more Rahona news, you can check out the following website:
Also included there is an announcment of the paper by Chiappe et al. in this
weeks (today's) Nature on Shuuvia deserti, a kind of new alvarezsaurid.
(Chiappe and colleagues have reanalysed the hypodigm of Mononykus, and found
that there are at least two genera there. Shuuvia (hope I spelled that
properly) is the form with a complete skull (hoorah!), and some of whose
postcrania was described (as Mononykus) in the Memoirs of the Queensland
Museum vol. 39, issue 3 (the Gondwana dinosaur volume). A photo of the
skull can be found on the website.
Good time to be an early bird... :-)
