Re: Who put the anus in zhaoianus?

Tyrannosaurus rex and Edmarka rex for example. "rex" remains unchanged even if combined with a generic name of female gender.

(Actually... I should have thought of this 10 years ago... *Edmarka* and *Othnielia* can be queens, but they can hardly be kings. They should end in *regina*, not *rex*. The 1999 edition of the ICZN certainly doesn't care, though, and probably the earlier ones don't either.)
