RE: The fossil specimen of "Hushiyaolong" (Xinhua photo)By People's Daily Online

Thomas R. Holtz, Jr. writes:
"Hushiyaolong being a Chinese name for Epidexipteryx. Anyone know enough
Mandarin to translate the "Hushiyao" part?" 

The web page reads:
"The "Hushiyaolong" is named after the name of "Hu Yaoming", a young
deceased Chinese paleomammalogist."

Is that it, or is there something more to it?
