I guess you're referring to this:

        fragillimus_ Cope, 1878.  pp. 131-137 in J. Foster and
        S. G. Lucas (eds), Paleontology and Geology of the
        Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation.  New Mexico Museum

Nice paper, IMHO. It also includes the suggestion that _A. fragillimus_ may represent a distinct species (and even a distinct genus) from _A. altus_, the type species for _Amphicoelias_. The discovery of further _A. fragillimus_ material might be required before such a move took place, however.
