Re: [dinosaur] Struthiosaurus (nodosaurid ankylosaur), new reconstruction (free pdf)

Should PeerJ retract this paper?

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).

    A novel reconstruction of the nodosaurid dinosaur Struthiosaurus
    austriacus Bunzel 1871 is presented. Because bones and dermal
    armor are preserved as disarticulated elements only and because of
    the lack of field notes from the original excavation(s), any
    attempt to reconstruct the animal is complicated. To date, no
    reconstruction is available for Struthiosaurus austriacus. This
    study primarily focuses on aspects of function and arrangement of
    dermal armor. The re-investigation of the original material of S.
    austriacus revealed that - in all likelihood - many plates from
    the left side of the body may well belong to a single individual.
    This observation is an important step towards the successful
    reconstruction of S. austriacus.
