New *Brachiosaurus* paper
This one came out last month, but I don't think it was reported on this
list. I found it while browsing the PaleoBios website, I haven't had a
chance to get a copy of the full article yet:
Bonnan, M.F. & Wedel, M.J., 2004. First occurrence of *Brachiosaurus*
(Dinosauria: Sauropoda) from the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of
Oklahoma. PaleoBios 24 (2): 13-21.
Abstract: The giant sauropod *Brachiosaurus* is one of the rarest sauropods
from the Upper Jurassic of North America. The genus has previously been
reported from Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. OMNH 01138 is a sauropod
metacarpal of unusual proportions from the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation
of Oklahoma. The bone is longer and more slender than the metacarpals of
diplodocids and *Camarasaurus*, and is most similar in size and proportions
to the elongate metacarpals of *Brachiosaurus*. This is the first report of
*Brachiosaurus* from Oklahoma.
