Peloroplites



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"?

(Thinks: Godzilla meets the 300.)
