What are these dinosaurs? 2: Return of What are these dinosaurs?
Thanks for all the help on the first bunch of nomina nuda. A few more
dinosaurs of some sort to question about.
What exactly is "Aniksosaurus"?
Is there any real reference to the large late Cretaceous theropod known from
a caudal vertebrae and fragmentary ribs called "Dinosaurus" in the Dinosaur
Society Dinosaur Encyclopedia? As far as I know, Dinosaurus is just a
junior synonym of Plateosaurus.
Macelognathus Marsh 1884
Nectosaurus Versluys, 1910/ Merriam, 1905
These appear on the Dinodata website. What are they?
I'd never heard of Meniscoessus caperatus (Marsh 1889) (also on Dinodata).
Apparently has something to do with Tripriodon caperatus, which I believe is
a synonym of Paronychodon lacustris. Who came up with the name
What's the story behind Ponerosteus? On Dinodata, it is said to have
something to do with Procerosaurus/Iguanodon exogirarum.
