What is meant when someone says a particular dinosaur was discovered in a particular year? *Orkoraptor* will be named in 2008 (the paper 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.
