RE: Info on some less well known taxa

An update on this question, posed recently on this list:

10) does anyone have information on Limaysaurus? (Describer, location, material and the citation). is it nomina nuda?

The genus _Limaysaurus_ was described very, very recently - in the latest issue of JVP, in fact...

Salgado, L., Garrido, A., Cocca, S. E., and Cocca, J. R. (2004). Lower Cretaceous rebbachisaurid sauropods from Cerro Aguada del Leon (Lohan Cura Formation), Neuquen Province, northwestern Patagonia, Argentina. J. Vert. Paleontol. (4): 903-912.

_Rebbachisaurus tessonei_ is referred to the new genus _Limaysaurus_.

This issue also features some closure on the South American theropod _Genyodectes_:

Rauhut, O. W. M. (2004). Provenance and anatomy of _Genyodectes serus_, a large-toothed ceratosaur (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from Patagonia. J. Vert. Paleontol. 24 (4): 894-902.

I haven't yet seen or read these papers; but AFAIK most abelisaurs have rather small teeth (_Carnotaurus_ is an exception).
