 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...
