In 1949, Alfredo de la Torre y Callejas found a 45-centimeter (18 inch) bone in
ViÃales (western Cuba) and identified it as that of a Diplodocus or
Brontosaurus. The bone was lost, however, and the very general description and
single photograph that have survived leave doubt about its true origins.This
fossil element may have been a metacarpian bone of a large Camarasauriformes,
but as the fossil is lost, this identification is not out of risk (Leonardo
Salgado, personal comm, 2002)
The Alfredo de la Torre's paper puede encontrarse en:
and history in:
In the last interview in 2002, before dying, Alfredo de la Torre y Callejas
"It seems that was stolen and is now in the country of the North"
Do you seen this bone in any American collection?
Thanks for help,
