Re: FAQ: Dinosaur Classification Overview

Well, now that you mention it, I can always find something to complain about. ;-)
I personally would prefer to see Herrerasauria formally recognized in your classification (as sister group to the rest of the theropods, i.e. neotheropods). You could then have a section with a little more information about them, and perhaps also mention that some workers believe herrerasaurs are actually sister group to all other dinosaurs (not just to theropods).
I just don't like any more "incertae sedis" groups floating about than absolutely necessary. Even if they are left incertae sedis, I would prefer to see a couple of more sentences discussing them.
----Cheers, Ken
P.S. This is total nit-picking, but I've never come across the term "bin-ends". Is that sort of the British equivalent of "odds and ends"? Perhaps it is an American term as well, but it's new to me. Just curious. :-]

Guys and Gals,

Please can I appeal for some more feedback on the FAQ's overview of
dinosaur classification at
I believe I have had only one response so far, which is not enough to
give me confidence that haven't made any stupid mistakes!
