anybody know why it's called a Linheraptor? Does Linhe stand for something?

Seems like it's the name of the place it was found. Linhe District Some dinosaurs are named that way, or named for their finders or in respect to someone.

ah thx Shadowsot! I was hoping for a cooler explanation though Yeah, reading the PDF on the find, I was expecting it to have something to do with the unique features it displayed. Then I ended up just running the name in Google and finding out where it was.
