_OTHNIELIA_'S TEETH



I've got a question about teeth...

In Bakker, Galton, & Siegwarth's description of _Drinker nisti_ [Hunteria
2(6):8-18], they illustrate a tooth they claim to belong to _Othnielia rex_
[fig 10 A].

But, in Galton & Jensen's description of _"Nanosaurus" rex_ (renamed as the
type of _Othnielia_) [BYU Geological Studies 20:137-157], they describe a
headless skeleton.

So, does anyone know where the _Othnielia_ teeth described, and if the teeth
were associated with any postcranial remains to make sure that the teeth
*really* belong to _O. rex_?  Also, were the teeth associated with any
cranial remains?

Thanks.
