He can't just go around blithely referring to the Silurians as Homo reptilia.

For one, homo is the name of a genus referring to a particular group of ape-descended mammals (I think - I am no scientist). He's after something more like Saurus sapiens.

For two, homo is a masculine noun and reptilia is a feminine adjective.

He might be handier than me with a sonic screwdriver, but his Latin sucks.
