The question now is, should I include the name Kittysaurus in the Dinosaur 
Genera List as a legitimately published nomen nudum for Eotyrannus? This is 
on a par with Elvisaurus (for Cryolophosaurus) and Chihuahuasaurus (for 
Sonorasaurus). This would become name #904 and would be listed like this:

Kittysaurus [Anonymous] 2001 [nomen nudum => Eotyrannus]

(I would change the [Anonymous] if the news article were bylined.)
