Acracanthus



Anybody out there know whether this name (or a similar one, such as 
Acrocanthus) might have been given to a fossil fish (by, say Agassiz) or 
other animal before 1950? I've searched with Google but keep pulling up the 
dinosaur. If Acracanthus were preoccupied, it would explain why they used 
Acrocanthosaurus in place of it when Stovall and Langston originally 
described it.
