New name for Nemegtia barsboldi
If you thought naming dinosaurs after insects was fun, another popular group of
animals for which names fine themselves preoccupied are the ostracods,
crustaceans convergent on clams. In this case, it's apparently *Nemegtia*, the
ostracod, that requires *Nemegtia,* the dinosaur, to net a new name.

nov., a replacement name for the oviraptorosaurian dinosaur *Nemegtia* Lü et
al., 2004, a preoccupied name. _Bulletin of the National Science Museum,
Series C_ 31:51.
It's a single page, btw. This news was brought to you by pizza, my beautiful
custom computer which NEVER has a hiccup (yeah, right), a diet coke, Darren
Naish at http://darrennaish.blogspot.com/ , and the letter "N".
This may be the last name of 2005 to add to the lists ... or not. Maybe it
turned out "Ingenia" was renamed sometime without a report....
