Re: Giraffatitan

Because there are significant differences between what is known of B. 
altithorax and brancai I applied a new subgeneric title to the latter in case 
additional fossils of the former verify the designation, or require a generic 
separation. Wanted to do it myself since the African species deserved a cool 
appropriate name. Although the Morrison brachiosaur skull tends to favor 
separation, the situation has not changed enough yet for full distinction to be 
proposed. If and when additional Morrison remains require a generic separation 
it has to be Giraffatitan.
