Re: new sauropods: Amargatitanis and Nopcsaspondylus



The geological formation where Amargatitanis comes, "La Amarga", is feminine in spanish (and means "The Bitter one")

Nick Pharris <npharris@umich.edu> ha escrito:


AMARGATITANIS gen. nov.

Etymology: Amarga, referring the fossil locality; titanis (Greek), titan, giant, because of the affinities of the specimen with the titanosaurs.

Actually, *titanis* is specifically a female titan.
