This one`s not technically a "dinosaur", it`s a prolacertilian. (could be a
dinosaur ancestor though!). Dave Peters sees it as a possible pterosaur
ancestor. At his webpage, he says it is "named for the Cose people of
Spain". Ellenberger (who thought it was a bird ancestor) gave it the
"bird-headed" aviceps tag.
