Coelurosaurus (*) (C/N)

“Hollow-Tailed Lizard” was, more than likely, not really a dinosaur. It was described by von Huene in a 1914 paper and may have been a misspelling of ‘coelurosauria’. Coelurosaurs were a group of theropod dinosaurs that included the tyrannosaurids, ornithomimosaurs, and maniraptors.

Although not encountered in Jurassic Park, some remains, presumed to be Coelurosaurus, were being tested for DNA extraction when the novel took place.
