RE: Giganotosaurus with an all-star cast

I thought that at least a couple more (and larger)  _Giganotosaurus_
specimens had been found and are awaiting "the  papers."

As far as I know, the holotype skeleton (MUCPv-Ch1), referred dentary fragment (MUCPv-95) and tooth (MUCPv-52) are the only known specimens of Giganotosaurus. The Huincul carcharodontosaurid (known from eight individuals, some larger than the Giganotosaurus holotype) will seemingly be given a new generic name.
