Hey, this is a pretty good article, and I am inspired to ask the following
little question: Which dinosaur species has been given the greatest number of
different generic names? Off the top of my head, I can think of six for what
is currently called Anatotitan copei: Trachodon, Thespesius, Diclonius,
Anatosaurus, Edmontosaurus, and Anatotitan.
Everything counts: synonyms, renamings, and referrals.
