Hadrosaur jaw fragments found 1 m from K-T boundary in France

I don't recall seeing this paper mentioned here--it's
been available for a few months. In any case, the pdf is
Michel BILOTTE, Yves LAURENT & Dominique TEODORI, 2010.
Hadrosaur remains in the Late Cretaceous marine sediments
of Larcan (Petites Pyrenees, Haute-Garonne, France).

The discovery of two hadrosaur fragments (maxilla and
quadrate) in marine sediments of the end of the
Cretaceous (uppermost Maastrichtian) is reported.
Although this type of taphocoenosis is not exceptional
for continental organisms, its situation at approximately
1 m under the iridium zone of the K/T boundary deserves
to be emphasized.
There is also an older paper on a pterosaur bone from
France available on the same Web
