How about the trivial epithet ... "sp." ? This has been used , and I can't even begin to count them up, in place of a true species name especially when a critter is discovered and its precise position within the genera has not yet been determined. Yes, I know that "sp.." isn't a true species name, but it shows up in the literature an awful lot. Quick and dirty count for the epithet "sp." repeats count 1 and not counted if later given a proper epithet [86 for dinosauromorphs and theropoda, 21 more if you include the Mesozoic avians, 55 for sauropoda, ornithischia = 97] total = 259 !!! ---- Mickey Mortimer <mickey_mortimer111@msn.com> wrote: > There's also Gobivenator mongoliensis Tsuihiji, Barsbold, > Watabe, Tsogtbaatar, Chinzorig, Fugiyama and Suzuki, 2014 > > Mickey Mortimer > > ---------------------------------------- > > Date: Fri, 30 May 2014 21:12:03 -0700 > > From: jayp.nair@yahoo.com > > To: dinosaur@usc.edu > > Subject: Re: A trivial question > > > > 1.
