Not at all clear that southernmost Maastrichtian NA tyrannosaurids belong to
the genus Tyrannosaurus. For that matter, not yet clear that all the
Lance/Hell Creek/Scollard large tyrannosaurids belong to the species
Tyrannosaurus rex or even to the genus Tyrannosaurus, since there are not yet
any published detailed comparisons of other specimens against T. rex holotype
specimen. Lots of rumors buzzing around, of course. Note also that
practically all mounted T. rex specimens are composites that may be chimeras
of more than one species/genus, which doesn't make life easier.
