Re: PDF of the Coelophysis cannibalism paper & Triassic critter

cursorial crocodylomorphs (mesosuchians, in this case)

Do you mean *Macelognathus* or *Hallopus*, which do not belong to the paraphyletic Mesosuchia (a name I haven't seen in the literature for years)?

How does one derive ""hollow-skeleton lizard" from this?
I get the "koilos" (="coelos") and "saurus" parts, but what's
the etymology behind the middle part?

Skia = skeleton, according to v. Huene's original description which I happen to have read a month or so ago.
