Norell, Clark, Dashzeveg, Barsbold, Chiappe, Davidson, McKenna and Novacek,
1994. A theropod dinosaur embryo, and the affinities of the Flaming Cliffs
dinosaur eggs. Science 266: 779-782.

Originally referred to Velociraptor, later said to be troodontid (Norell and
Makovicky, 1999; to be published in Norell et al., submitted).  The tooth
morphology has led to unpublished referrals to Byronosaurus.
