Aha! "Brown (1904) described plesiosaur remains (AMNH 5803) from the Ft. Pierre
Formation, at the "head of Hat Creek Basin, 18 mi. southwest of Edgemont, South
Dakota" that contained fish vertebrae, broken pterodactyl bones, and Scaphites
as stomach contents."
Brown apparently made no mention of how the ptero bones got there, though.
Thanks to Mike Everhart!
