What is meant when someone says a particular dinosaur was discovered

is technically still in press), but was collected in 2001.
The link could be worth discussing, because the two reconstructions
of *Orkoraptor* by the same artist look nothing alike.
The first picture has one dinosaur, which I assume is Orkoraptor.
IMHO, the second picture has two dinosaurs; the dead one looks like
the first picture.
I wonder if the fossils are informative enough for one of the
reconstructions to be preferable.
