Re: Deinocheirus, and spinosaur systematics

 Considering that the holotype of Irritator challengeri is in a German museum
 and the holotype of Angaturama limai is in a Sao Paulo museum, it is
 incredibly unlikely that they're from the same individual. But stranger
 have happened. >>

  I once found a metatarsal bone of an ornithomimid at the Sternberg Museum in
Hays, Kansas, that originally came from a specimen later collected by the
SDSM&T in Rapid City, SD. And it came from the Fox Hills FM. which is a near-
shore beach deposit. It was like finding an old friend in your high school
annual. The Sternberg graciously made a cast for themselves then donated the
fossil to the Museum of Geology in Rapid City.
  I love fossil stories. Any more out there? Dan Varner.
