<< My references say that the specimen (one bone) was badly damaged (but
nearly complete) when found, was the 9th or 10th dorsal vertebra, and that
it was lost during transference of Edward Drinker Cope's collection to the
Academy of Natural Sciences of Phila. >>
Is there any possibility that the specimen could have gone to the American
Museum of Natural History in the Cope collection they purchased? Anyone ever
checked there? Dan Varner.
AMNH yes. Jack McIntosh has looked, I think so has Ken Carpenter, but I may
be wrong, but needless to say it has been looked for but never found.
