I've got a few questions:
1) Does anybody know the names of the other crocodile species recently
described with Sarcosuchus (mean-looking!). I've been searching like mad,
but all I can find is Sarcosuchus, Sarcosuchus... and more Sarcosuchus. I'm
asking this because I really like the painting of Luis Rey of the Suchomimus
being grabbed by a huge croc, and since the jaw morphology of Sarcosuchus
does not match that of the croc in the painting (looks a bit more like
Crocodylus), I'm trying to find another species by which to call it.
2) About the pachycephalosaur referred to as "Sandy", what is its exact
taxonomic status? Is it Stygimoloch, or is it Pachycephalosaurus? I
originally thought it was Stygimoloch, (and Luis Rey's painting &
Pachycephalosauria Home Page seem to state so) However, refers to it as
3) Anybody got any idea what species the new giant caenagnathid is? Luis Rey
refers to it as Chirostenotes. (Mike Triebold's page has some really great
4) I remember that Jack Horner excavated 3 species of Centrosaurine in the
Two Medicine Formation many years back. One was Einiosaurus, one was
Achelousaurus, but what is the third species?? It's got a nasal horn like
Styracosaurus but it has a frill more like Einiosaurus. I tentatively refer
to it as 'Monoclonius sp.' Any news on its description? It's been a vrey
long wait because it was discovered some years back and furthermore, an
entire bonebed of it was found. If Achelousaurus and (one of my fave
Ceratopsids :) Einiosaurus can be named so quickly, what about this other
one? (For more info look up Digging Dinosaurs by Jack Horner)
5) Similarly, in Jack Horner's book there is some mention of a tyrannosaur
somewhat intermediate between Daspletosaurus & Tyrannosaurus. What is it? Or
what about the supposed 2nd species of Daspletosaurus?
6) Still on Tyrannosaurs, are Shanshanosaurus & Stygivenator still valid
taxa or are they generally considered juvenile Tyrannosaurus?
7) Is Megaraptor's phylogenetic position settled yet? And what about that
giant carnosaur that was larger than Giganotosaurus?
