*Laelaps* Cope wasn't named until 1866, ten years after the first American dinosaurs.

Yeah, *Hadrosaurus foulkii* was described in 1858, IIRC. Still, I've seen this date (1839) for *Laelaps* in various sources, but it wasn't description (Cope was born in 1840) but just a mention. I've also made some further research on countries, and these are numbers from 1999 (so there should be about 60 more genera distributed within some countries to get current results): 1.) USA 113 2.) China 63 (?) +33 invalid 3.) Mongolia 55 4.) Canada 41 5.) UK 41 6.) Argentina 40 7.) France 20 8.) India 10 9.) Germany 10 10.) Portugal 10 11.) Australia 10 12.) RSA 10 13.) Spain 9 14.) Niger 8 15.) Uzbekistan 8 16.) Tanzania 8 17.) Morroco 6 ... Cheers, Vlad
