Swedish Hypsilophodonts revisited



Back in October there was discussion of a Swedish website
(http://www.sundweb.com/fossil.htm and discussed here as archived at
http://www.cmnh.org/fun/dinosaur-archive/2001Oct/msg00046.html et
seq.).  The leader of the excavation apparently saw the discussion in
the archives and has sent the following.  Should you wish him to see a
response please direct followups to his address since he is not
currently subscribed:

I am the paleontologist leading the excavation at the Åsen site in southern
Sweden. The deposit is a marine sand accumulated during latest Early
Campanian (sensu germanico) time. In addition to isolated, shed selachian
teeth, the sand has yielded a fair number of turtle, plesiosaurian and
mosasaurian remains (mostly isolated teeth and vertebrae). A few teeth and
two vertebrae of dinosaurs have also been collected. So far, the material
has not been formally described, even though we intend to do so in the near
future.
Sincerely, Johan Lindgren
