I listed his dinosaurian "taxa" in the back of the first and second printings
of _Mesozoic Meanderings_ #2, since they are published names. He has created
no new dinosaurian "genera" that I know of, just weird subspecies of known
species. These are only a small subset of all the taxa he has created.
