Re: Platecarpus tympaniticus - how to analyze a nomen dubium



Quoting Tim Williams <tijawi@yahoo.com>:


To put it another way, unless Marsh was 100% clear that Ceratopsia was named after _Ceratops_ (rather than Ceratopsia and _Ceratops_ just having the same etymologies) then there is no requirement under PhyloCode to include the _C. montanus_ type as an internal specifier for Ceratopsia.

Except that "Ceratopsia" isn't based on _Ceratops_ (that would be Ceratopia), but must instead be based on something like "Ceratopsis".
