What is incertae sedis?

'Incertae sedis' is a Latin term which means 'uncertain placement'. You often see it after dinosaurs who are difficult to place in a more specific group, possibly because they are newly discovered and yet to be properly researched or known only from fossil fragments

In lamens terms it means 'we don't know'. Honesty is the best policy.
