Since everyone seems to believe that _Opisthocoelicaudia_ is a titanosaur,
there's no reason to exclude platycoelous/amphicoelous caudals from
Titanosaur[ia; formes; oidea; idae; take your pick]. These could simply be
transitional between the familiar procoelous caudals of most titanosaurs and
the opisthocoelous caudals of _O._
