Is this true? I know Gilmore collected a partially articulated specimen
from the North Horn Formation in central Utah. I can't recall whether
or not he collected cervicals.
No cervicals, or dorsals either. The partial skeleton (USNM 15560) of
_Alamosaurus_ collected by Gilmore from the North Horn Fm included a nice
series of articulated caudals, a sacrum (not collected) and various other
postcranial elements, but no cervicals.
