Only if you think _Rebbachisaurus tasmenensis_ is congeneric with _R.
garasbae_. Since nobody seems to think this (_R. garasbae_ is a
diplodocoid neosauropod; _R. tasmenensis_ is a non-neosauropod
eusauropod), it seems that _Jobaria tasmenensis_ would be the proper
designation, and a senior synonym of _J. tiguidensis_ ... if _R.
tasmenensis_ is not a nomen nudum, that is....

Either way, _Jobaria_ can stay ... it's _J. tiguidensis_ that's under
judgment here.
