It was Olshevsky (1991) who erected _Ultrasauros_ for _U. macintoshi_, as a
replacement name for the preoccupied _Ultrasaurus_ Jensen. Thus, _Ultrasauros_
Olshevsky has _U. macintoshi_ Jensen as its type species. Apparently the name
"Jensenosaurus" was proposed as a replacement for _Ultrasaurus_ Jensen, but
never formally used.
Both _Ultrasauros_ Olshevsky and _Ultrasaurus_ Jensen are currently considered
to be subjective junior synonyms of _Supersaurus_ Jensen, given that the type
material appears to be referrable to _Supersaurus vivianae_.
