RE: Isisaurus colberti




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.


If the genus was named after the goddess Isis, then it would have to be "Isisaura".
