You're probably correct, and Ken Carpenter I'm sure knows more about
_Gojirasaurus_ than anyone. But, as I said previously, discovering a single
coelophysoid-like tooth near a postcranium (even if that postcranium is
coelophysoid) is no 100% guarantee that the two come from the same animal.
Remember those teratosaurids - carnivore teeth associated with prosauropod
I'd bet the tooth does belong to _Gojirasaurus_, but only further
discoveries will settle the matter for sure.
