Dinosaur Genera List corrections #175
This is just a quickie correction to note that Ralph Molnar has provided an
even earlier reference for the name Colossosaurus, noted in the previous DGL
correction, and it is in (of all places) The Complete Dinosaur, edited by Jim
Farlow and Mike Brett-Surman, Indiana University Press 1997, in the
historical article by Hugh Torrens. It refers (on p. 186) to the same
November 4, 1849 entry in Mantell's diary that Dean does.
So the entry for Colossosaurus becomes:
Colossosaurus Mantell, 1849 vide Torrens, 1997 [nomen nudum => Pelorosaurus]
The genera count does not change.
