RE: Abrosaurus dongpoi



From: Ben Creisler bh480@scn.org

As I posted in the Omnipedia for Dinosauria On-line:

Type Species: Abrosaurus dongpoensis [doong-paw-EN-sis] 
Ouyang 1989: "for Dongpo": named for Su Dongpo, pen name 
of Su Shi (1036-1101 AD), famous Song Dynasty writer and 
poet born in Sichuan Province where the fossils were 
found. 

I'm not certain replacing the species name with the 
grammatically more correct form "dongpoi" would be 
authorized by ICZN however.
