Re: Lumping Spinosauridae Redux

From: Tim Williams <twilliams_alpha@hotmail.com>

That reminds me... Oliver Rauhut raised the specter that the type material for _Spinosaurus aegyptiacus_ might be a chimera, with the jaw material and vertebrae coming from separate animals. If this is the case, which element will bear the name _Spinosaurus_?

From what I remember reading, I >think< he suggested only the portion of
dentary be referred to as _Spinosaurus_. I'd have to double-check, though. If only I could get my hands on my own copy of the darned thing...
