And what about China ? If the fossils were not only teeth but the 
dinosaurs were found in situ, a good explanation is really necessary 
(where can Rigby's statement be found ?).

In addition, Late Cretaceous dinosaur eggs (some of them with 
pathological shell) were described from the Pyrenees by Erben
(if I remember the author correctly). In an abstract published later,
the author wrote that a Paleocene age has been determined for some
of these eggs by different methods. Have there been any 
published comments on these claims ?
