This would be the type specimen of Podokesaurus holyokensis, found by Mt. 
Holyoke College professor Mignon Talbot and described by her in 1911. The 
headless postcranial specimen was destroyed in a fire in the Mt. Holyoke 
College collection, but casts are available. It seems to be a valid genus of 
small podokesaurid (=coelophysid), probably a juvenile individual, about 1 m 
long. A little dinosaur, though too large to qualify in the "smallest 
dinosaur" sweepstakes.
