Dilophosaurus sinensis no more, Sinosaurus triassicus rises again

Now it can be told. On-going work by Lida Xing, Phil Currie and colleagues 
support the identification of the dinosaur long called
"Dilophosaurus sinensis" as a junior synonym of Sinosaurus triassicus (with the 
ironic trivial name, since the beds they are in are
now considered Jurassic.)

Thero-workers have known this has been coming for some time; glad to see that  
it is out in at least a short version (the longer
taxonomic arguments are not yet out.)
