Fw: Iguanodon species
> Iguanodon (i-GWAHN-uh-DON) "Iguana tooth" [Mantell, 1825]
> Type Species:
> I. bernissartensis (bur-niss-ar-TEN-sis) "from Bernissart (Belgium)"
> [Boulenger vide van Beneden, 1881]
of this I'm doubtful, where is I.mantelli (he should be the type species,
no?) and he's not even on this list.
> additional species:
> I. anglicus (ANG-gleh-kus) "English" [Holl emend. Bronn, 1850]
> I. atherfieldensis (a-thur-feel-DEN-sis) "from Atherfield" [Hooley, 1924
> I. dawsoni (DAW-sun-IE) "(Charles?) Dawson's" [Lydekker, 1888]
> I. fittoni (FIT-uh-NIE?) "Honoring someone named Fitton (who?)" [Lydekker,
> I. hoggi (hog-IE) "Honoring someone named Hogg (who?)" [Owen, 1874]
> I. lakotaensis (lah-koe-tah-EN-sis) "from Lakota (formation, S. Dakota)"
> [Weishampel & Bjork, 1989]
> I. ottingeri (?) "(Lin) Ottinger's (discoverer)" [Galton & Jansen, 1979]
> The ? are places where I was unable to find the appropriate information.
> Example, several searches involving every possible combination of Hogg,
> Owen, Iguanodon & Dinosaurs came up nil. The same with Fitton, Lydekker,
> Iguanodon & Dinosaur.
> Other than that, my only other query would ask if I overlooked any other
> species. I assume the rest have all been reevaluated as synonyms of the
> above species or other genera. I know I. hilli is said to be Hadrosaurian
> in origin, but is that a definite, or just a possibility?
> Any help would be most graciously appreciated.
> My deepest thanks,
