Re: Peloroplites



This is because it doesn't matter if the noun is collective,
it matters if the noun phrase is collective. "The postcrania
of *Cedarpelta*" is plausibly collective, and English will
go a long way on plausibly.

Similarly, "David's library is a matter of scientific curiosity"
or "Graydon's computer parts pile is not very well organized".

These examples are tangential to the point, because "library" and "pile" are singular...
