"Walkersaurus" might best be left as _Megalosaurus hesperis_, then.  The name 
"Walkersaurus" is invalid anyway (nomen nudum).

It'd be nice to see where other 'megalosaurs' end up in the theropod tree - 
like _Marshosaurus_ or _Gasosaurus_ or _Monolophosaurus_.

(Good to have you back, Mickey.)

Cheers
