Cryolophosaurus ellitio (Hammer & Hickerson, 1994) >> Elvisaurus (Holmes, 1993)
The children\\\'s dinosaur book \\\"The Newest and Coolest Dinosaurs\\\" by Philip J. Currie and Colleayn O. Mastin contains the generic name Elvisaurus as a synonym for Crylophosaurus ellitio first used by Holmes in 1993: \\\"To some people the crest looks like an [sic] snow shovel, but to others it looks like an Elvis Presley style \\\'jelly roll\\\' hairdo, which is why some jokingly refer to this dinosaur as Elvisaurus.
Since this discovery was made in the Antarctic, this discovery made this dinosaur a \\\'cool dude\\\', just like Elvis.\\\" Although the name Elvisaurus has no formal nomenclatural standing, it is a published name with an etymology and real material associated with it, and therefore considered a genus.
