Is the association of the _Cryolophosaurus_ type material settled yet?  I
know doubts have been expressed regarding (a) whether all the theropod
material belongs to _Cryo_ and (b) whether the "prosauropod" material from
the same horizon actually belongs to _Cryo_.

There's _"Megalosaurus"_ (_Zanclodon_) cambrensis_, known from the imprint
of a dentary.  I think some folks in Britain think this Late Triassic
critter could be a dilophosaur, rather than a megalosaurid.

BTW, I see in the JVP _Masiakasaurus_ paper that _Lametasaurus_ is listed as
an abelisaurid.  That's the first time I've seen that assignment mentioned
in print.
