Fig.1. Daemonosaurus chauliodus (from Spiegel Online, 13.04.2011, credit by Jeffrey W. Martz).

The generic nomen is derived from Greek daimon, evil spirit, and Greek sauros, reptile, in allusion to legends about evil spirits at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico. The specific epithet is derived from Greek chauliodous, with prominent teeth.

With such a geomythological name the little fellow deserves a brief spot here on the blog...
