I guess I can talk about this now. Mohler et al. (2021) describes a new specimen of Deinosuchus from the Menefee Formation of New Mexico. This represents one of the earliest occurrences of Deinosuchus and fleshes out our understanding of southern Laramida in the early Campanian. You can access the paper below, and you might see some cool stuff in the last figure... Mohler BF, McDonald AT, Wolfe DG.2021. First remains of the enormous alligatoroid Deinosuchus from the Upper Cretaceous Menefee Formation, New Mexico. PeerJ9:e11302 This after Titus et al. 2021 mentions a 70% complete juvenile Deinosuchus from the Kaiparowits Formation. Good week for Deinosuchus fans. I'm also working on an update of my skeletals, here's a preview:

Early Dinosaur Evolution, especially Carnian forms

Overall evolution of Sauropodomopha and Ornithischian, their distribution and diversity

Middle-Late Triassic faunas and their Biostratigraphy

Raw phylogenetic datasets construction, e.g. combining and/or expanding previous works

Since I’m still a undergrad student I made this gallery to post some drawing (haven't done that part in years) and discuss some of my opinion in paleontology; though most of the discussion and paper comments are being transferred to my blog (that got cancelled because things I'd like to discuss there would be too important and maybe valid a paper in the future).

Still around at DA, cause I like following some friends work, rarely will post something original maybe a journal once or twice.

Since many people still are "faving" my charts and some even using my 2017 drawings as references I think I should add a disclaimer on those, but as I am too lazy to update 100+ old posts I'll add a comment to cover em all: DISCLAIMER -> size esti

There is such a long time I don't do one of this, but here it goes... a little text on everyone favorite drama series "Spinodrma". Note this was wrote for discord, I am just adapting and posting it here because it ended up too big there. I know I should have done a better job referencing the papers quote during the text, but this took me five hours and a bit more just for formatting from Deviant Art. The Two Kem-Kem Spinosaurids This part of the journal contains a summary of the argumentation and conclusion, complemented with some personal comments, to the presence of a second spinosaurid in the Kem Kem beds. Rostra Out of the characters distinguishing the rostral morphotypes, only “ventral premaxillary profile in lateral view” is kinda good, it has decent states, but is affected by distortion. The others are not totally bad characters, however they have poorly differentiated states and are affected by the taphonomical distortion and crushing of morph-B rostrum. The nares character

I agree, got to see the highlighted text couple weeks ago.

Functional anatomy is not my main area of interest, but goes in with the evidence we've been gathering in the last 5 years that Spinosaurus (and close kin) had a center of gravity anterior to its hips (more like quadrupeds than bipeds), that together with the evidence it had stiff knees points and Wittons calculations says something we ""knew"" since 2014, it probably wasn't a conventional biped, but contrary to previous interpretations that it was quadruped this just says it probably crawled when moving on land.

Nope, even if Malkani found anything diagnostic in those two they still were not correctly named according to ICZN.

Carno probably will have the more comprehensive answer as he is much better than me with nomenclature rules.

Happy late birthday! :)
