Re: Ultrasaurus=Supersaurus (was Re: Trex femur (was : Dinofest))
In a message dated 12/5/00 6:20:25 PM Mountain Standard Time,
<< _Ultrasaurus_: non-diagnostic sauropod (brachiosaurid?) material from
_Ultrasauros_: a mix of elements from the diplodocid _Supersaurus_ and a
particularly large _Brachiosaurus_. Am not personally sure which one the
type specimen comes from.
The Type for supersaur (originaly described as_Ultrasauros_) is based on that
material ascribed orginaly to_Ultrasauros_. Dry Mesa quarry I believe. The
type is housed at BYU. There is now a second one found, that is much more
complete...housed at the Tate Museum in Wyoming. More to come on this
critter in the not to distant future...
