Re: Wilkinson's new pterosaur paper, J. Headden



1. If other Sordes material is on a counter plate, why has it
received no mention in the literature? or online? If you have any
data other than hopeful imagination, please share it.

Unfortunately it is _normal_ that one of two slabs is lost, presumably in the field.


Whether a slab has been split through the fossil or not is, however, easy to tell from looking at the fossil or at _not too small_ photos of it. And of course, the fossil is probably always the weakest part of a rock, so if you split a slab, you split the fossil...
