The Torosaurus "bonebed" is that for the type quarry of Torosaurus (first
referred to ?Arrhinoceratops) utahensis, from the North Horn Formation of
Utah (which seems to be a Lance/Hell Creek equivalent, in part). If I
remember right, Gilmore and crew collected around half a dozen individuals.
No Torosaurus bonebeds from the Lance or Hell Creek, unfortunately. . .:-(
