RHOETOSAURUS brownie - In honor of Henry York Lyell Brown, a geologist responsible for many vertebrate fossils found in Australia - correct?

No - Arthur Browne, the station manager of Durham Downs Station (where the fossils were found) who forwarded some of them to the Queensland Museum for identification.
