Additionally, it should be pointed out that on the same >page< that Marsh
coined Coeluria (with the sole member _Coelurus agilis_), Marsh also coined
the group Compsognathia, with the sole member being _Compsognathus longiges_.
I don't think that Marsh's intent with >either< of these names was to form a
large all inclusive group, and they should both be viewed the same way as
Paleopoda and Thecodontia....
