Saurophaganax



In all the recent posting re Saurophaganax as state emblem, there has been
much information imparted. However, no-one seems to have mentioned the
Smith analysis of Allosaurus, in which, according to my recollection, he
sank Saurophaganax as a junior synonym of Allosaurus. Can anyone more
familiar with the material confirm the current accepted status of this
dinosaur?
