Sorry, no etymologies found.
So, here I am still excited by Limusaurus, the herbivorous ceratosaurid, and up pops a previously unknown form of the speciose ceratopsian genus Psittacosaurus (presently 10-11 valid species known), from the Cretaceous of Inner Mongolia.
Oh, and I also read "A ceratosaurid [Dinosauria; Theropoda] from the Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous of Uruguay" in JVP, but it really had no bearing on the novel.
