Re: Minotaurasaurus controversy



Although the name will still be around in the literature, it is not at all
apparent that it will be considered the appropriate name for the fossil. For
example, there is no evidence in the paper that the authors compared it to
*Pinacosaurus mephistocephalus*, and it certainly has some resemblances to
that species.

Sure. I was only talking about the fact that a subjective junior synonym isn't (technically) in oblivion the way an objective junior (unconserved etc. etc.) synonym is -- and even the latter continue to exist in the sense that they keep competing for priority (such names can't be reused).
