Definitely. For many genera and species, it comes down to the eye of the
beholder. Some , like _Kakuru_ or _Xiaosaurus_ or _Titanosaurus_ or
_Megalosaurus_ are on the bubble: their validity is a matter of differing
opinion. Others are no-brainers: _Antrodemus_, _Agathaumas_, _Pteropelyx_
and _Paleoscincus_ (and so many others) fall into the category of undisputed
Using this as a rule, the only way _Brontosaurus_ could be synonymized with
_Apatosaurus_ is if _ajax_ and _excelsus_ were synonyms.
