More on the Iguana spined Diplodocid



Hello,
   How did the 45 foot long adult diplodocid from the Howe Quarry (the one
that had some carbon film casts that may be from karatinous dermal spines
along the tail section)come to be identified as Diplodocus sp.when adults of
that genus should be twice that length?Or is 45 feet the length of all that
was found of that specimen(in which the classification would make more
sence)?
Also,besides keratinous dermal spines,what other interpretations have been
made about the carbon film casts found in the Howe Quarry?

Thank you,
John Bridgman
