Cor­rec­tions and clar­i­fi­ca­tions

The Guardian - Journal - - Letters -

• The win­ner of the French auc­tion of a rare di­nosaur skele­ton will not au­to­mat­i­cally have the right to name the species, as we said in an ar­ti­cle (Di­nosaur up for auc­tion – and the lucky buyer gets the nam­ing rights, 12 May, page 30). While an owner has the pos­si­bil­ity of nam­ing a new zo­o­log­i­cal dis­cov­ery, there are strict pro­ce­dures in place. In ad­di­tion we mis­spelled the di­nosaur’s sub-order, thero­pod, as “ther­a­pod”.
