Arkansas State Dinosaur Receives Formal Name

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


Arkansaurus fridayi was discovered in 1972 and informally named in an unpublished paper in 2003. In 2017 Arkansaurus was designated the Arkansas state dinosaur despite not having an ICZN-recognized name. Finally after decades of waiting a new paper has formalized the name with a complete redescription.
