Diplodocid Dermal Spines

In reference to dermal spines in diplodocids mentioned by Zoe Heraklides and
Jordan Mallon, the original paper addressing these structures is in a paper
by Stephen Czerka's entitled "Discovery of dermal spines reveals a new look
for sauropod dinosaurs" published in Geology vol.20, Dec. 1992 pg.1068-1070.
It includes a brief description of a number of these elements discovered in
the Howe quarry, both isolated and associated with a segment of distal
caudal verts, along with a few photos and figures.
