Re: Kritosaurus australis (was Re: Carnotaurus)

I just wondered whether _K. navajovius_ & _K. australis_ are similar enough to warrant placing them in the same genus. (Yup, it's the same ol' genus debate thing again...) But _K. navajovius_ is a nomen dubium right? And while we're at it, what happened to _Naashoibitosaurus_ & _Anasazisaurus_?

By the way, what is the age of _"Kritosaurus" australis? And is it different from _Secernosaurus koerneri_?

According to Bonaparte & Rougier, it was "of Late Cretaceous age, probably restricted to the Campanian - Maastrichtian".

Also, why do you place "Kritosaurus" in quotes? Do you doubt it being of that genus?

I have the paper for Bonaparte & Rougier's "The Late Cretaceous Fauna of Los Alamitos, Patagonia, Argentina, VII, The Hadrosaurs". However, it does not state what year it was published. Could somoene post onlist the complete citation?
