Re: "Gwangisaurus" - possible?

Well, as the Turkish case proves, there is a need for nomenclatorial lawyers -- a new branch of law. They can handle appeals to the ICZN, research page priorities, and with the proper training in Latin and Greek plead cases for correcting names. Just what VP needs. Can grants for nomenclatorial legal services be far behind?

Or would the lawyers come out of the woodwork pronto?

Any such lawyers could simply go cheney themselves (or each other if they prefer). And so, BTW, can whoever was the environment minister of Turkey in 2005 (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4328285.stm). The International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (http://www.iczn.org/iczn/index.jsp) doesn't contain any such restrictions. If you don't like a validly published name, too bad for you.

(...Furthermore, an anonymous BBC journalist can go cheney themself for capitalizing species and subspecies names. But I digress.)

Oh, BTW: ther_OOOOO_pod.
