Hi everybbody,
Now I know this is going to be an utter shock to all of you ;) but I'd like to know about the Nomen Clature or Etymology of this new Sauropod. Am I right in assuming it is named after both the Egyptian Deity named Isis, and Edward Colbert?

No. "Isi" is for the Indian Statistical Institue, which houses the fossils. But I guessed Isis too, before I saw the paper.

And it's Edwin, not Edward.
