Don't worry. A few years from now someone will erect a new genus for _A.
Something else that's weird: the taxon "Aeolosaurini". This was apparently
erected by Franco-Rosas et al. (2004) for a stem-based clade that was
defined to include _Aeolosaurus_ and _Gondwanatitan_. But AFAIK, there is
no Aeolosauridae or Aeolosaurinae. There may be a need for Aeolosauridae,
given (a) the demise of Titanosauridae as a phylogenetic taxon; and (b)
there is good evidence that _Aeolosaurus_ and _Gondwanatitan_ (and maybe a
few other taxa) form a clade of titanosaurs outside of Saltasauridae.
Also unusual--the abstract is in Portuguese and English, but the body
of the paper is in Spanish.
