I **DO** love the name:
"Peloroplites cedrimontanus ("monstrous heavy one from Cedar Mountain")"
But does it just mean heavy? I think the last three syllables of the genus
name are a reference to hoplites, the armored warriors of ancient Greece.
So maybe "Monstrous soldier from Cedar Mountain"? Or "Warrior-monster"?
