While it is wisest, there is a simpler choice -- to call it *Coelophysis*. The only conspicuous difference from *C. bauri* is that it lived later, after all.

That works for _S. rhodesiensis_ - and Alex Downs' work pretty much nails the synonymy of _Syntarsus_ (=_Megapnosaurus_) and _Coelophysis_. But what do you call _"Syntarsus" kayentakatae_?


Apparently the authors of _Megapnosaurus_ thought Mike Raath was dead:

The rumors of his death were greatly exaggerated: the good Dr Raath was alive after all. Perhaps he was like our ancient Gothic friend Zalmoxes: he hid underground for three years, and people just thought he was dead.
