  This skull is most certainly known, and corroborated between two specimens. 
The front half of
the skull is known, the rear not, but this includes the crest. The specimen is 
currently in
negotiations to find a permanent location (or it already has) and until then, 
the specimen cannot
be described.

  Any further inquiries should be made to Mike Triebold of Triebold

  Don't let the name "Oviraptor" fool you, this is a caenagnathid, if anything.
