Potential Oviraptor material has been found in South Dakota at Mike
Triebold's "Sandy Site". But meanwhile what you have is just a cast, and
the original could be from anywhere. The fact that the identification
says only 'Oviraptor sp.' means that the people doing the casting don't
know the species. Sorry. Even if they were pretty smart, the one claw
may not be diagnostic enough to pin down the species.
