Case 3536: Stegosaurus Marsh, 1877 (Dinosauria, Ornithischia): proposed replacement of the type species with Stegosaurus stenops Marsh, 1887

Peter M. Galton, “Case 3536: Stegosaurus Marsh, 1877 (Dinosauria, Ornithischia): proposed replacement of the type species with Stegosaurus stenops Marsh, 1887”, Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature, vol. 68, no. 2, pp. 127-133, 2011.

The purpose of this application, under Article 81.1 of the Code, is to preserve stability in the taxonomy of stegosaurian dinosaurs by replacing Stegosaurus armatus Marsh, 1877, the unidentifiable type species of the ornithischian dinosaur genus Stegosaurus Marsh, 1877, with the very well represented nominal species Stegosaurus stenops Marsh,....

Comment 3536-1: Comments on Stegosaurus Marsh, 1877 (Dinosauria, Ornithischia): proposed replacement of the type species with Stegosaurus stenops Marsh, 1887 (Case 3536) 1

Susannah C. R. Maidment, “Comment 3536-1: Comments on Stegosaurus Marsh, 1877 (Dinosauria, Ornithischia): proposed replacement of the type species with Stegosaurus stenops Marsh, 1887 (Case 3536) 1”, Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature, vol. 68, no. 3, pp. 213-214, 2011.

In Case 3536, Galton outlined the taxonomic history of the iconic dinosaur genus Stegosaurus. In this Case, Galton asked the Commission to designate Stegosaurus stenops as type species of the genus Stegosaurus, thereby allowing the holotype specimen of Stegosaurus stenops, USNM 4934, to become the representative of the genus....

Comment 3536-2: Comments on Stegosaurus Marsh, 1877 (Dinosauria, Ornithischia): proposed replacement of the type species with Stegosaurus stenops Marsh, 1887 (Case 3536) 2

Kenneth Carpenter, “Comment 3536-2: Comments on Stegosaurus Marsh, 1877 (Dinosauria, Ornithischia): proposed replacement of the type species with Stegosaurus stenops Marsh, 1887 (Case 3536) 2”, Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature, vol. 68, no. 3, pp. 214-215, 2011.

The taxon Stegosaurus armatus was established by O.C. Marsh in 1877 on a very fragmentary specimen from the Morrison Formation near Morrison, Colorado (erroneously stated to be ‘Morrison, Wyoming’ by Galton, BZN 68: 127). The specimen was encased in silicified sandstone and collected very poorly by modern standards using....

Case 3560: Plateosaurus engelhardti Meyer, 1837 (Dinosauria, Sauropodomorpha): proposed replacement of unidentifiable name-bearing type by a neotype.

Galton, P. M., “Case 3560: Plateosaurus engelhardti Meyer, 1837 (Dinosauria, Sauropodomorpha): proposed replacement of unidentifiable name-bearing type by a neotype.”, Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature, vol. 69, no. 3, pp. , 2012.

The purpose of this application, under Article 75.5 of the Code, is to conserve the usage of the name  Plateosaurus  Meyer, 1837 (Upper Triassic, Germany), known from numerous articulated skeletons, several with complete skulls, from the Norian  Plateosaurus  bonebeds of Western Europe and Greenland. This was the first non-English, non-avian....
