Who says "unremarkable"? When you have as little fossil material as we
do in Arkansas, this creature is highly appreciated. These beasts made
those tracks over at Nashville (Arkansas).

I think Dinosaur Society Dino Times did something. Let me know off-list
if you need me to check on this. How about an "unofficial" dinosaur for
Arkansas: Arkansaurus fridayi, a swift little ornithomimid. Dr.
Kirkland  was going to take another look at the lone foot of the local
specimen so what info I have is tentative and at least two years old.
