Clarifying Hierosaurus sternbergi



Okay,
if I have this straight...

*Hierosaurus coleii* (Mehl, 1936) = *Niobrarasaurus coleii*

While...
*Hierosaurus sternbergi* (Wieland, 1909) is a nomen dubium. Is it included with
*Nodosaurus textilis*? Or is that an old, outmoded idea?


One more question: Several sources said that the reason for the generic name
(*Hierosaurus* = "Sacred lizard") is unknown. Anybody have a clue?


Pre-emptive thanks,
Tommy Bradley
