"Saltriosaurus" Dalla Vecchia, 2001 [nomen nudum]
.....
The former appears in the article

Dalla Vecchia, F. M., 2001. "A New Theropod Dinosaur from the Lower Jurassic 
of Italy," Dino Press 3: 81-87 [illustrated by Berislav Krzic].

It is not formally named or described, but it is nicknamed "Saltriosaurus," 
making that name eligible for inclusion as a nomen nudum in the Dinosaur 
Genera List. No type species is named for this genus in the article. The 
genus is also added to the tables for the second printing of Mesozoic 
Meanderings #3.<<

Dear George, 
I need to specify clearly and strongly one thing:
mine is JUST a divulgative article. You cannot rely upon it for the name
"Saltriosaurus". Actually this name appeared many many times in the Italian
 press (in the Italian edition os Scientific American, for example)last
November and December. That should be your source and reference, not my
article. Thus, take into consideration this for your list of dinosaur genera.
Cristiano Dal Sasso is the paleontologist working on that specimen and the
paternity of the generic name will be only of Cristiano.

That's all folks.
