Actually, I can and basically have. I've lists of all paleozoic and
mesozoic tetrapods that I've been able to find in litature. My library
is huge and is slowly pushing out the walls :->.

One list is just names, on list is just localities, another is a more in
depth list. One person in the SVP has expressed interest, but nothing
yet. I've summited the idea to a publisher, no bite. It's so large, that
a book won't work. In the dinosaurs I've a biblography after each family
and it's over 1,000 pages (I think). all the other groups of animals the
biblography is at the end of the list. Sauropterygia is 500 pages.

I can supply names from localities, states, provinces, countries,
hemipsheres, time, formations, etc. 

It' just money stopping me right now. I've invested to much time to not
get somehting out of it.

Just think, being able to go to one site, CD, book, what ever and look
up every labyrinthodon, early amniote, turtle, lizard, snake,
sphenodont, ichthyosaur, plesiosaur, placodont, crocodile, pterosaur,
archosaur, dinosaur, mesozic bird, pelycosaur, theraspimd, dicynodont,
mesozoic mammal. I can do it, but like I said, I don't have the funds to
do it.
