I remember this drawing very well from when I was a kid. It really brought 
home the notion that dinosaurs aren't just genera but >species<, and that 
different species of the same genus might have been quite different looking 
in life. Thereafter I was never particularly satisfied with dinosaur books 
that did not consider different dinosaur species rather than just genera (and 
that was almost all of them then).
