Are Oreodont and Leptauchenia the same genus /species?

Hi, 

I've seen several sellers who labeled their Oreodont fossils as Leptauchenia.

So I wondered are they the same thing or two different animals altogether? 

 

Thanks.

Technically, oreodonts are not the formal group name. Instead they belong to a group called Merycoidodontoidea. But like rfarrar said, Leptauchenia is genus within that group of many other animals.
