Re: Specific names





> (Apatosaurus) ajax

Ajax was a figure in Greek mythology, IIRC.

In Homer's Iliad, Ajax of Salamis was a "giant among men", famed for his strength and valor. (Met a rather nasty end, though.)


> Asioryctes nemegetensis

from the Nemegt Formation
Don't know about the generic name.

"Asian digger/burrower" I do believe.
