specimens in question have not been described or named yet. It takes
time to remove the specimens from the ground, get them back to a museum,
prepare the bones from the rock, compare the bones to those of previously
discovered specimens, take the photographs and measurements and drawings,
write up the paper, submit the paper, get the paper edited, get the paper
accepted, get the paper published, and then out...
it will be months (at best), and a year or so (more likely) before these guys
are named (if indeed they are a new species).
