Yes, Stromer's "Spinosaurus B" turns out to be Carcharodontosaurus
(only one "h", please).

Yes, it was a joke. Nine coauthors seems to exceed the normal
allowance for "alia"...
The type species of Epanterias is E. amplexus, which may predate
Creosaurus atrox (I'll have to check). However, the type of
Epanterias was mixed Camarasaurus and allosaurid material, so it is
not at all certain which one should be the name holder.
