RE: Dinosaur Genera List corrections #157
<<Due to a very heavy workload January-April, it has been almost three months
since the last DGL corrections. In the intervening time, I managed to make a
few minor cosmetic changes to the Dinosaur Genera List and added names #901
"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
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.
