<< _Proceratosaurus exogyrarum_ >>

I renamed this species Ponerosteus exogyrarum in May 2000. Fritsch's generic 
name Procerosaurus (not Proceratosaurus) is preoccupied by Huene's name 
Procerosaurus (a junior subjective synonym of Tanystropheus, according to 
Rupert Wild). Fritsch was also responsible for another Czech dino name, 
Iguanodon albinus, now known as Albisaurus albinus. The "albi" refers to the 
Elbe River, along whose shore the fossil was discovered. Both species are 
based on very poor material that may not be dinosaurian.
