How about Citipati osmolskae, Citipati sp., Khaan mckennai, or Nothronychus mckinleyi for the next details segment?
 
While the first three are fair game, PLEASE DO NOT DO SO for "Nothronychus", as it is not yet formally described in the literature.  When detailed descriptions show up in mass mailings like these, they have the potential to jeopardize the publication of the actual techincal papers if they are not yet published!
