Is the association of the _Cryolophosaurus_ type material settled yet? I
know doubts have been expressed regarding (a) whether all the theropod

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
