Questioning the Validity of Hypsirophus discurus
I hope my frequent e-mails aren't bothering anyone, but, I have another
question. I know that some of the material of _Hypsirophus discurus_ is now
referred to _Allosaurus fragilis_, and that some other species of
_Hypsirophus_ have been made synonyms with species of _Stegosaurus_.
Well, is _Hypsirophus discurus_ completely synonymied with _Stegosaurus_?
Or is the meager material (2 dorsal vertebrae, caudal neural arch fragment)
still retained under the name _Hypsirophus_?
The simple version of this question would be thus: _Hypsirophus_ =
And if _Hypsirophus is still retained, then can anybody clue me into the
meaning of the species name, _discurus? I know there is a Parrot with the
same species name, and I think it means "Racquet-tail" but I would
appreciate some confirmation.
Thanks in advance,
