Re:[new Chinese hadrosauroid]

Jay and Tommy: I am not entirely sure, but it may not be appropriate
to discuss the new Chinese hadrosauroid, and particularly not by name
given that the manuscript describing it has not yet been published.
Perhaps it would be better to wait and discuss these things after it
is published. It shouldn't be too far from now anyway.
