Re: Raptor Red and mesosaurus



I'm with Darren on this one.  Rhynchocephalia
needs to be cast out with the trash.

While I happen to agree here, Rhynchocephalia is a senior synonym of Sphenodontida, referring to the premaxillary tooth-beak-thing of *Sphenodon*. The rhynchosaurs were added later, and their removal doesn't necessarily affect the name Rhynchocephalia at all.
