Re: _Rajasaurus_, I've just had a thought. Isn't the generic
name for Dixon's (1988) bradyphant _Rajasaurus_? I don't
have the volume to hand, it's at home.
The bradyphant is a fictional sauropod for those of you that
don't know. Jumping the gun here but... if this is a
preoccupation by a fictional name (a situation that Unwin
(1992) recognised as a potential problem) does it matter?
