Re: Philovenator, new troodontid from Late Cretaceous of Inner Mongolia, China
Remember that my post wasn't completely serious *wink*. On a somewhat related
note, why so many new fossil taxa named after Charles Darwin? I think there is
too much Darwin-worship sometimes amongst paleontologists and the like. It
seems like in the last year or two there were all kinds of 'missing links'
described that got named after Darwin, like that one pterosaur.

See also: *Dinohyus hollandi*. Someone at whichever museum it was, the
story goes, was fed up with his director and named a "terrible swine"
