Re: Atlantosaurus/Apatosaurus/Brontosaurus

  This is not for the FAQ, being perhaps a little too involved. But the redis-
cussion of "Brontosaurus" stirred another thought that I would like to have
settled. If a new find (a more complete specimen) that matches the 2.5 sacral
centra shows that this animal should be included in the same genus as Apato-
saurus, does this mean that "Brontosaurus" is going to have to be renamed AGAIN
to Atlantosaurus? Does this ever end?
