Allosaurus species



I know that the classification of the various species of Allosaurus (A.
fragilis, A. atrox, A. amplexus, "Epanterias", etc.) has been the subject of
some debate over the years.  Would anybody out there like to expound on the
latest thinking regarding the classification of allosaurs?  Which species
names are valid and which aren't?  How do you distinguish the valid species
from one another?  And just out of curiousity, what are the vital stats of
the largest known specimen of Allosaurus?

Full of questions, ain't I?
