by altispinax do you mean becklespinax altispinax?
Later researchers considered Altispinax a nomen dubium because the single tooth was undiagnostic. No relationship could be proven between the tooth and the vertebrae. The vertebrae were therefore given a new name in 1988 by Gregory Paul. Paul considered them to represent a possible new species of Acrocanthosaurus , which he named Acrocanthosaurus? altispinax . The specific name was deliberately made identical to the old generic name, to emphasize that both referred to the vertebrae.[8] As indicated by the question mark, Paul himself was uncertain about this assignment. For this reason, in 1991 a new genus, Becklespinax , was named for the vertebrae by George Olshevsky, in honour of the original discoverer, Beckles. The new combination name of the type species Acrocanthosaurus? altispinax thus became Becklespinax altispinax .[9] The species names Altispinax altispinax [10][11] and Altispinax lydekkerhueneorum [12] are its junior objective synonyms.
