RE: Theropod Database Christmas update
Nice stuff Mickey.
BTW, what's the source/citation for putting _Yaverlandia_ in the
Also, I'm curious about whatever happened to "Tonouchisaurus", an
undescribed taxon (nomen nudum) that was said to be a primitive tyrannosaur.
Is there a specimen number?

Just in time for the holidays, I've updated my website. Note it's been
moved to http://staff.washington.edu/eoraptor/Home.html .
I added Agnostiphys and Chindesaurus to the theropod cladogram, after
Yates' recent Eucnemosaurus paper. Dracovenator, "Tyrannosaurus"
"lanpingensis", Allosaurus europaeus, Juravenator, Saurornitholestes
robustus, Tsaagan, Cerebavis, Elsornis, Dalingheornis, Archaeorhynchus and
Asiahesperornis have all been added. Portuguese Ceratosaurus and
Torvosaurus specimens were updated (Mateus et al., 2006). Megalosaurid
material was updated and Spinosaurus size was reconsidered (it's smaller;
due to discussions with an author of the new snout). Mirischia was moved to
Tyrannosauroidea (Naish online, 2004). Tyrannosauroidea was completely
reworked, largely after Carr's (2005) incredibly detailed thesis.
Extensive information on Tarbosaurus and Tyrannosaurus was added, including
specimen details. Hebeiornis was made a senior synonym of Vescornis, based
on my DML analysis. Enantiornithes phylogeny is slightly changed (Chiappe
et al., 2006), but is still largely a placeholder. Neornithine phylogeny
was expanded. I've also started redesigning the format for taxon entries to
show the formations individual specimens were discovered in, which involves
bolding the locality data in order to increase readability. Only some taxa
(e.g. tyrannosaurines) are updated in this manner at the moment.
