There is an implied lack of comparison to _Pinacosaurus mephistocephalus_.  
_Minotaurasaurus ramachandrani_ is evidently distinct from the type species, 
_P. grangeri_, which is mentioned in the description.  It's possible (but by no 
means inevitable) that future analyses could throw up the novel (and very 
literary) combination "_Minotaurasaurus mephistocephalus_", and expunge 
Ramachandran from the binomen.  But this is getting way ahead of ourselves...
