Just to add to the confusion B-) , there have been two different sauropods
that were called *"Gigantosaurus"* (one of them a fragment of an English
?brachiosaurid that AFAIK is now *Pelorosaurus* or something, the other one
was preoccupied and is now ?*Barosaurus*, *Janenschia* and *Malawisaurus*).
        And there is the preoccupied *"Coelosaurus" antiquus*, an
?ornithomimosaur from, IIRC, Maryland....
