ornithomime furcula



        In Norman's Dinosaur Encyclopedia there is a picture illustrating
what are supposed to be the gastralia of an ornithomime. Does anyone know
if this picture is based on actual fossil finds (as opposed to drawn after
other dinos for which such a series are known, e.g. Allosaurus), in
particular, the first "gastralia" which is larger and thicker than the
rest, and has the typical sigmoid curves that we find in T. rex and
Allosaurus bones now known to be furculae.
        thanks,
        Nick L.

        or is the singular for "gastralia" "gastralium"?
