Sereno, Paul C. 2007. A New Phylogenetic Taxonomy of Dinosauria (Chordata:
Archosauria). Journal of Paul C. Sereno 1(1):1-834.
A new and better phylogenetic taxonomy of the dinosaurs is presented, based
on the principles of Sereno 2005 which are far superior to those of the
draft PhyloCode. Ornithischia is redefined as a first-order redefinition of
the definition of Sereno 2005, as all taxa more closely related to
Triceratops Sereno 2005 than to Passer Sereno 2005. The name Saurischia is
replaced by Saurischimorpha tax. nov. and then a few pages later by
Saurischiformiformes tax. nov. The names Theropoda and Sauropoda are here
considered inactive, and must therefore be replaced: the replacement names
Sereniformomorpha and Serenimorphoforma are proposed. The new name
Dinosauria Sereno tax. nov. is proposed as a replacement for its homonym
Dinosauria Owen 1842, and is here defined as (Ornithischia Sereno 2005 and
Saurischia Sereno 2005). Four new synonyms of Sarcolestes (sensu Sereno
2005) are provided. In addition the names Biota, Biotiformes, Biotomorpha
and Biotinae are all defined identically, but are not considered synonymous,
following Sereno 2005.
