Re: Status of _Utahraptor_?
In a message dated 2/1/01 1:35:49 PM Pacific Standard Time,
<< Almost all the
theropods everyone has been calling "dromaeosaurids" probably aren't; they
should be referred to as "velociraptorids" instead (with Velociraptorinae
raised to family level as Velociraptoridae). Dromaeosaurus is represented by
a single specimen that is mainly a few skull and mandible bones with teeth,
and these are quite different from comparable elements of velociraptorid
theropods such as Deinonychus and Velociraptor. >>
What is the status of the "dromaeosaurid" with the short, bulldog-like
face (from Alberta, I think)? Has it been published yet? DV.
