_Ischisaurus cattoi_ and _Frenguellisaurus ischigualastensis_ are both based
on specimens that appear to be referrable to _Herrerasaurus
ischigualastensis_. This was done by Sereno and Novas - e.g. Novas, F.E.
(1994). J. Vert. Pal. 13: 400-423. Hence, both names are junior synonyms of
However, in a recent paper - maybe it was the description of _Guaibasaurus_
by Bonaparte et al. (1999) - the referral of _Ischi_ to _Herrera_ was
disputed. I can't remember the reasons why, and I can't check at the moment
because all my dino papers are in a different state at the moment.
Hope that helps!
