Almost certainly two genera. The question is whether the type
material of _Diracodon_ is determinate as to genus and species and therefore
whether that is the name that should be applied to the broad-plated form.
I know that _Wuerhosaurus_ (and, presumably, the closely related
_Monkonosaurus_) have alternating plates, but I know of no others.
