Er... in case anyone wants to read my opinion on this... IMHO it's obvious
that the h is "an inadvertent error, such as a [...] copyist's or printer's
error", namely an editor's or lector's error. And so away with the h, and HP
Dinogeorge's First Revision is de jure not a First Revision because there
are not 2 potentially correct spellings in the original paper, and there was
much rejoicing. Where is the problem with that?

Such as Guimarota (which BTW also contains a *Stokesosaurus* ilium and
tyrannosauroid pmx teeth). Apparently a long lineage of theropods is hidden
somewhere out there.
