Re: Need help with locating paper/identifying cervical.

Hmm. . .this looks like it may be out of Marsh's Dinosaurs, a book that
originally came out back in the 1960's, with Ostrom and McIntosh as editors.
It's a collection of Morrison dinosaur lithographs. The book was reprinted a
few years back. I don't have my copy in front of me (in the long, long
process of beginning to move cross-country), unfortunately, so I can't tell
you any more.

Beware the use of lithographs, though--if you can compare with the original
specimens or photographs, that'd probably be ideal. They're very
well-rendered, but I've often found some discrepancies between the original
specimen and the illustration.

Hope this info helps,
