New Bavarian theropod has been nicknamed "Xaveropterus" as the result of a poll 
of radio listeners. Fortunately, this name has no official status. Xaver 
(=Xavier) is a typical Bavarian boy's name apparently, although why -pterus 
"wing" was chosen is not clear--maybe for the evidence of a featherlike 
covering.
