I took a look at this message. It's pretty funny --
Ponerosteus Olshevsky, 2000
Proposed as a replacement name for Procerosaurus Fritsch,
1905, which is preoccupied by Procerosaurus von Huene, 1902
[...] Ponerosteus, I believe, finally takes care of the last
of the preoccupied genera among the dinosaurs.
How the march of history makes fools of us all :-)
