Sadly, no.  Maidment & Wei (2006) subsequently validated the name
_Gigantspinosaurus_.  They could have used the opportunity to revise
the spelling (= insert the o), but didn't.  Instead, they implicitly
regarded Ouyang's (1992) publication as valid.

The Code is so frequently flouted that many of its rules and
recommendations might as well be written in invisible ink.
