... which is is getting, of course, courtesy of Kristian Remes.  The
subject of his Masters thesis is "A Review of Barosaurus africanus
(Fraas)".  Then we have to wait for the paper ...

["_Gigantosaurus_" _africanus_ = "_Barosaurus_" _africanus_ =
_Tornieria africanus_, the latter combination proposed independently
by Remes, presented at SVPCA 2004, and by Upchurch et al. 2004.
"_Gigantosaurus_" _dixeyi_ = _Malawisaurus dixeyi_.  "_Gigantosaurus_"
_robustus_ = _Janenschia robusta_ =? _Tendaguria_.  I think that about
wraps it up for "_Gigantosaurus_" :-) ]
