 Hello list-friends,
 I know this question has been asked before, but my company has had a 
 systemcrash (Philips; let's make things better...) and I lost a 
 rather large part of my saved mails.
 What was the name of that largest sauropod found? If I remember 
 correctly, the only bone which was found (?a vertebra of 2.5m tall? is 
 missing at this moment. I had been searching for half a year for that name
 and now it's gone again. I hope someone can help me out.
I believe that it was _Aphicoelus_, but I could be wrong. All that was 
discovered was a vertebra, and all that remains is a drawing of the bone 
(including measurements).  If the fossil is real, then that specimen, which 
was discovered in Colorado, USA, would be bigger than _Argentinosaurus_.

Best Regards
Chandler Gibbons
