Actually, he is now using both. If you cannot lick'em, split'em.

He has Brontosaurus excelsius and B. louisi in the middle Morrison and
Apatosaurus ajax at the top.

He is proposing the genus Eobrontosaurus for his new species from the
lower Morrison. That paper will be out in our Lower to Mid. Cret.
Terrestrial ecosystems symposium volume that will be out next fall.
