Re: More questions on species names

From: "Dino Rampage" <dino_rampage@hotmail.com>

1) _Avaceratops lammersorum_ or _A. lammersi_?
2) _Utahraptor ostrommaysorum_ or _U. ostrommaysi_?
3) _Bambiraptor feinbergorum_ or _B. feinbergi_?

For what it's worth, I would assume the specific epithets ending in "-orum" to be right. In most cases, they're grammatical corrections made by the likes of DinoGeorge, taking into account the plural etymologies of the names.
