*Ekrixinatosaurus*, *Unaysaurus*, *Harpymimus*
Hooray! The library here has Ameghiniana. Thus I can now clear up the
etymology of *Ekrixinatosaurus*: it was born (Latin: natus) in an explosion
(Greek: ekrixi) -- they found the bones by using dynamite.
It also has Zootaxa, but not the 2004 volume. Does someone on the list
happen to have the description of *Unaysaurus*, on paper or (preferably --
for more than one reason) as pdf?
How long is the skull of *Harpymimus*? The illustration in The Dinosauria II
is incompatible with this one http://dino.lm.com/images/display.php?id=1589.
I have found several cases where the scales in figures in D2 are wrong, but
always by something simple like a factor of 2. This is not the case here.
(BTW, thanks for doing that illustration, Jaime. Without it I wouldn't even
know that a complete presacral column is known for *Harpymimus*!)
