RE: Theropodan Holotypes - a couple more
If the newly minted Dr. Josh Smith is checking the DML lately, then he
might have some input here. In his work in Egypt (for _Paralititan_),
he researched Stromer?s work, and even had photographs of the
_Spinosaurus_ vertebral column (at least those parts that were found).
He did mention at one point, that they have almost even identified the
bomber group that actually destroyed the museum.
If these numbers still exist, Josh probably has them.
So, Josh, are you there?
Hope this helps,

Kind of hard to find the numbers for specimens that were obliterated
before my parents were born... or is there another way to cite these?
just says "destroyed in World War II".)>
The only convention I have noticed at all has been to index using the
date of recovery and the specimen of that date, often written as 1920
or so forth. I asked the list previously on convention of citing
specimens, but this has been pretty flexible in the literature. I think
Sereno et al's method of 1996 and 1998 has some weight in that that was
how the specimens were referred. One might want to try to find the
accession abbreviation for Stromer's repository , but I do not think it
ever had one. Then it's initials should serve somehow.

Little steps are often the hardest to take. We are too used to making
leaps in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do. We
should all learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us
rather than zoom by it.
