Re: Lumping Spinosauridae Redux
From: Tim Williams <firstname.lastname@example.org>
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...
