Gojir[a]saurus they feel is a chimera (Ken, want to comment?), made up of
theropod material and Shuvosaurus (or shuvosaur-like suchian) material.
[...] The dorsal vertebrae have hyposphenes, so should be saurischian.
Or rauisuchian, right?
Oh yeah. Spondylosoma.
Surely shuvosaurids haven't developed theropod-like pubes too?
If they were bipedal, perhaps we should expect them to...
Hmm. I do recall Chatterjeea has an oddly ornithomimid-like pelvis...
Sauropodomorphs from Azhendohsaurus-like basal archosaurs...
Er... what has *Azendohsaurus* turned out to be?
See Jalil 2002 (SVP) and Parrish 2003 (SVPCA).
Incidentally, does this leave Chatterjee with any taxa he described as
dinosaurs still being dinosaurian?
Technosaurus - sliesaurid.
Protoavis - chimaera.
Shuvosaurus - suchian.
I suppose Polarornis is unlikely to be non-dinosaurian, though its gaviiform
nature has been questioned.
