Statement from Dr. Jürgen Kriwet, head of the department for vertebrate paleontology at the University of Vienna (he asked me to enter the comment in the mailing list):
"This topic and the original idea was conceived by me and Fabrizio for his BSc thesis. Mr Frotzler is the department illustrator and was supposed to support Fabrizio. Obviously, he believes that he has the right to publish this new reconstruction, which is very inaccurate. Fabrizio is working on a better one and will present it in due time. Cheers, Jürgen"

Betreff: Re: [dinosaur] Struthiosaurus (nodosaurid ankylosaur), new reconstruction (free pdf)
I would take this one with a grain of salt. I both know the author and am working with S. austriacus myself and there is a whole amount of anatomical similarities with other nodosaurids and ankylosaurs in general not taken into account (as can be seen by the amount of sources cited).
