[Dodgey science pisses me off too. As previously stated, the moniker 'Homo Reptilis' or ;Homo Reptilia' makes zero taxanomic sense. Basically, it seems an awful lot like the writer wanted a cool-sounding latin name for the Silurians. Unfortunately, he didn't take the time to actually look at how proper latin names are derived, or didn't care.
Was homo reptilia a term of Chibnall's coinage? I thought it was from the old series. I agree with you as to why it's pretty bad, though. But it doesn't bother me too much because it's only as inaccurate as Silurian or Eocene, which are
from the old series.
