Re: Tarchia

the material Tim is referring to are all specimens that are referred to Tarchia 
gigantea by Tumanova. However, as I will show elsewhere, there is considerable 
doubt on this. In fact, there is doubt that T. gigantea (especially the skull) 
is even assigned to the correct genus.

    I'm sure at least one club is known, and various limb elements and 
pieces of armor. IIRC PIN 551-29 consists of postcranial elements and a 
nearly complete postcranial skeleton lies uncollected to this day at 
Khermeen Tsav, over 30 years after the skull (PIN 3142/250 ) was collected.
