Re: JVP 29(2) Spoiler Alert

Nevertheless, it's a spelling error embedded in the genus name, so it can't be emended.

That's the very question. This particular kind of mistake is possibly implied in the very vague list of what counts as an incorrect original spelling, and not mentioned in the list of exceptions that don't count as incorrect original spellings.

Stegosaur workers have treated _Gigantspinosaurus_ as a valid name...

True, but completely irrelevant to the ICZN.
