Artist | Traditional Art
Young freelancer paleoartist.
Affiliated to Frascati's research centre.
Currently studying in order to graduate in biology and natural sciences.
Particularly oriented towards a paleontologic specialization, other interests include ethology of birds, ornithology, phylogenetics, lepidopterology, microbiology and mycology.
My mentors include Daniela Santucci, Patrizia Spinelli, Enrico Alleva and Andrea Cau.

- Note: sometimes I include scientific explanations, hypotheses and interpretations in my artwork captions that are often based on my own studies and observations, that could at times consciously contradict the official interpretation of related professionist paleontologists. As long as you have to spread information, don't use my own thoughts in the mentioned cases due to ethical reasons. Especially if you are going to write it on e.g. online publications, books or wikipedia. If you actually are a professional paleontologist/researcher, you are free to comment with agreement/disagreement opinions. If you are a dinostuff-enthusiast and would like to know more about dinosaurs or have a debate, you can contact me and ask me about anything, but still considering I'm not a professionist with practical experience. Thank you. -

Follow me on instagram (danny_yxilon) in order to watch works in progress of upcoming paleoart pieces in my insta stories, as well as if you're interested in my other activities which include music, piano, dancing, modeling and people portraiture artworks.

Hello :),
Do you have intentions of further updating you phylogenies?
I would like to know the classification of recently described species, and since you have one of the few mega matrices available for both Theropoda and Ornithischia, I'm curious t see if you have plans on doing so.

Hi, at the moment I'm very busy due to either paleontologic and other studies and stuff so I don't have much time for Deviantart right now. Note that those phylogenies are not results of single analyses (especially Theropoda) so don't consider them as professionally proper sources. Since last update I've only included Diluvicursor, Matheranodon, Caihong and that megaraptorid I'm not sure about spelling it correctly. Yeah a little things changed but that was predictable as they interest very unstable areas of the tree. You might contact me on fb or insta if you are curious about details but nothing mind-blowing happened in relation to the overall phylogenetic resolution and implications regarding those areas.

I waned to check if have pretensions of updating those, since you are coding new taxa you want to update it.
I'll wait till you update them, thanks for the answer.
