I beleive the reasoning is that it refers to the Altai Uul itself=2C and th=
e regions around it (including the Nemegt Valley) in which the specimen was=
found. In this case=2C it's shorthand and not supposed to be explicit term=
inology in direct apposition with the genus name. If anything=2C it does me=
an "Altai [Uul](Gold [Mountains])'s _Alioramus_=3B" being nitpicky about th=
e terminology may be fine=2C but like _Mei long_=2C elegance of the nomencl=
atural flow is the chosen reason for the absence of a correct Latinate stru=
cture of the phrase it can be approximating (in which case=2C it isn't actu=
ally approximating a phrase of any sort -- in Latin).
