Re: Species name etymology

Thanks Nick,

Quoting Steve Walsh <steve.w@c-point.com>:

CHAMOSAURUS belli - referring to the Belly River

I think this is pretty unlikely, except as a sort of pun. I'd put my money on it being named after some (male) person named Bell.

My original thought was John Bell Hatcher, the 19th century fossil collector.
