Does anyone know how to search the Fossilworks/Paleobiology Database sites to create a list of fossils sorted by name and age for geographical areas such as Arizona? http://fossilworks.org/ I found an interesting Wikipedia page that lists fossils found in Arizona that provided links to Wikipedia pages about the individual fossils. The source for the list is from the Fossilworks/ Paleobiology websites. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_prehistoric_life_of_Arizona Similar pages are available for other states. To find other pages search for: “List of the prehistoric life of Xxxx Wikipedia”. Substitute desired state for Xxxx. A list of known fossils from any geographic locality is very useful especially when references are cited. Let’s figure out how to create lists of fossils.

So I was browsing through the Archaeopteryx lithographica records on FossilWorks; and in one of the three records (from Workerszell, Eichstätt), I notice the mention of an 'unclassified' reptile taxon "Rhacehosaurus gracilis". The only further information that was provided was the age range (150.8 to 145.5 Ma) and the geographical distribution. I looked elsewhere online (google scholar, ResearchGate...) for any other mention of the genus "Rhacehosaurus", and nothing else turns up. Do you people know about this enigmatic taxon? Is it some kind of invalid synonym or something? I'd love to know more about this..
