Re: New horned dinosaur from Montana

It does seem like they're crawling out of the woodwork this week. If I'm not mistaken, that's eight new horned critters published in a span of just two or three days. (That'd be Ajkaceratops, Coahuilaceratops, Diabloceratops, Medusaceratops, Ojoceratops, Rubeosaurus, Sinoceratops, Tatankaceratops... cripes, did I miss any?)

I remember quite liking the name Medusaceratops when it appeared in Ryan's dissertation, and am pleased that circumstances provided for it to become a valid name after all. (Not that I had any major objection to Albertaceratops; Medusaceratops just sounded infinitely more cool!)

In any event, congratulations to all who had a hand in this week's horned dino invasion!
