Re: Brontomerus, new Utah sauropod
From: Ben Creisler
I was not aware of the planned publication schedule for
the paper but was still surprised to see the article
appear so soon online. As I mentioned, I waited to see if
Mike or another author would make an announcement before
sending a posting to the DML. Once I saw the name on
Wikipedia and in Google search, however, I figured the
dinosaur was out of the matrix so to speak. This is an
interesting sauropod with a great name and definitely
deserves a formal announcement done in the right way.
I hope the premature paper was taken down before too much
harm was done.
