Re: Complete juvenile theropod unveiled in Germany



Tom,

"Wait For The Paper".

Ha-Ha --- a wry sense of humor. People score taxa off of two inch skeletal reconstructions in Science. The on-line photos are better than most published pictures. The day will come, if on-line self publishing ever meets code requirements, when something like this small theropod will be described and named from underneath the researcher based solely on the photos released to the press or posted on-line.

Even higher-res image of the new guy:

Also, a comment on the article points out that the sedimentology
resembles Late
Jurassic lithographic limestones, and they wonder if
the 135 Ma age is really supposed to be 153 Ma.
