Re: Huehuecanauhtlus tiquichensis, new Santonian hadrosauroid

Well now that you've called attention to it the challenge has been laid down. Might be a good name for a cephalaspid or anaspid agnathan fish.

God, I hope that no one discovers any new dinosaurs in Wales....


thank you, wiki.
_The 58-character name 
Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is the famous name 
of a town on Anglesey, an island of Wales. This place's name is actually 51 
letters long, as certain character groups in Welsh are considered as one 
letter, for instance ll, ng and ch. It is generally agreed, however, that this 
invented name, adopted in the mid-19th century, was contrived solely to be the 
longest name of any town in Britain. The official name of the place is 
Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, commonly abbreviated to Llanfairpwll or the somewhat 
jocular Llanfair PG._

According to Ramírez-Velasco et al., _Huehuecanauhtlus_ should be pronounced 
“UEUE-CANA-UHh-TLUS”. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how one would pronounce 
“UEUE-CANA-UHh-TLUS” either.

In lieu of a pronunciation guide, I think I'll call this fellow 'Huey' for 
short. :-)

Huehuecanauhtlus tiquichensis

Ramírez-Velasco AA, Benammi M, Prieto-Márquez A, Ortega JA, Hernández-Rivera R 
Huehuecanauhtlus tiquichensis, a new hadrosauroid dinosaur (Ornithischia: 
Ornithopoda) from the
Santonian (Late Cretaceous) of Michoacán, Mexico. Canadian Journal of Earth 
Sciences 49(2):

Huehuecanauhtlus tiquichensis gen. et sp. nov. is the southernmost diagnostic 
basal hadrosauroid
in the Americas. The holotype and referred material of this taxon came from 
Santonian strata in
the Michoacán State, southwestern Mexico. Huehuecanauhtlus tiquichensis is 
diagnosed on the
of a combination of dental, axial, and appendicular characters, including the 
following: at least
two teeth exposed on the occlusal plane of the dentary and maxilla; seven 
sacral vertebrae; tall
neural spines of caudal vertebrae; supraacetabular process long; and short and 
trapezoidal (in
lateral view) postacetabular process. It differs from other hadrosauroids in 
having an ilium with
extreme ventral deflection of the preacetabular process. Maximum
parsimony cladistic analysis placed H. tiquichensis as a closely related 
outgroup to
Hadrosauridae. The occurrence of H. tiquichensis in the Santonian of North 
America may be
explained as a dispersal event from Asia to North America that occurred no 
later than the Albian
or, alternatively, as a vicariant event of a most recent common ancestor 
widespread in both
