Re: On Xenoposeidon gen. et sp nov

An etymological note on the species name *proneneukos*: it actually has nothing to do with Latin *pronus*. Instead, it's a derivative (a perfect active participle, if you want to get technical) of the Greek verb *proneuein* 'to stoop or bend forward', like a rower or a rider on a horse.
