Considering that the holotype of Irritator challengeri is in a German museum
and the holotype of Angaturama limai is in a Sao Paulo museum, it is
incredibly unlikely that they're from the same individual. But stranger things
have happened. Don't have my references handy, but I think there may be enough
overlap in the specimens to preclude their coming from the same individual.
(Would be good if someone could check this...).
