Abstract

The purpose of this application, under Articles 75.5 and 75.6 of the Code, is to replace the existing, non-diagnostic holotype of Megalosaurus crenatissimus Depéret, 1896 (currently Majungasaurus crenatissimus) by a neotype. The designation of a neotype is necessary to conserve the prevailing usage and concept of the species.
