The ONLY VALID SPECIES OF AMPHICOELIAS is AMPHICOELIAS ALTUS.

At 27 meters, A.Altus is nowhere near the largest creature to have alked the earth. This is good anyway- Surely the largest ever dinosaur deserves a better name?

altus is the valid one, fragilimus isn't valid yet. And altus was about the size of Barosaurus or Diplodocus.

When Amphicoealias is refered to as the largest dinosaur, it is A. fragillimus that is being refered to. A. fragillimus is valid, valid until somebody renames it.
The closest anybody has ever come to this was 1 proposal that Amphicoelias = Diplodocus.
Stop being a t!t.

A.Fragillimus is not valid. A.Fragillimus was described after A.Altus. A.Altus is valid. A.Fragillimus is not.

It may or may not be a valid species, probably is but we cannot say for certain.

Yarly.

A.Altus is the ONLY SPECIES THAT CAN BE VALid because ALL species have to HAVE THEIR OWN GENUS!

Both are valid. The movement for every genus to be mono-specific has not yet been adopted by the ICZN, therefore A. fragillimus is still perfectly valid.

Amphicoelias was far longer than 200 feet, more like 250-300.

Ah, but what is Big Al compared to Crazy Fish. CF is omnipotent, Big Al isn't. CF can defeat God, Big Al can't. CF lives, Big Al died in the Late Jurassic.

Now do you understand?

Nein.

Read the Crazy Fish article. You'll find that he is superior to Big Al in every manner.
