Nor am I. I know of _Pentaceratops sternbergii_, _Gorgosaurus sternbergi_,
_Troodon sternbergi_, _Hierosaurus sternbergii_ and _Chassternbergia_. Not

O.C. Marsh has three dinosaurs that are explicitly named after him:
_Othnielia_, _Marshosaurus_, and _Stegosaurus marshi_ (later transferred to
_Hoplitosaurus_). However, I also think that _Elosaurus_ ("marsh lizard")
was a pun on Marsh's name. In any case, Marsh would be pleased to know that
he beats Cope in this respect. AFAIK, only two dinosaurs are named after
Cope: _Anatosaurus copei_ (later transferred to _Anatotitan_, though not
unanimously supported) and _Drinker_.
