On re-reading his SVPCA abstract at
I see that I have misremembered Remes's position of "Barosaurus"
_africanus_: he did not find it as closest to _Barosaurus_, but as the
sister taxon to a _Diplodocus_ + _Barosaurus_ clade.  Apologies.

I also noticed that I mistyped his forename, "Kristian".  <sigh>  Not
a good day for me so far :-)
