<< Secondly, strictly speaking _I.
atherfieldensis_ may have to be renamed if _Vectisaurus valdensis_ is
considered a junior synonym (as David Norman and others believe).
_V. valdensis_ was named in 1879, predating _I. atherfieldensis
Most senior synonym of _Iguanodon atherfieldensis_ may be _Heterosaurus
neocomiensis_ Cornuel 1850, recently restudied by French workers. I would say
_I. bernissartensis_ and _I. atherfieldensis_ belong in different genera, but
they're retained in _Iguanodon_ more by tradition than anything else.
