RE: Update of Dinosaur Material From Nebraska



It took some looking but I found the newspaper articles which confirmed the Yale cast as the tooth found in Nebraska.

So the updated listing is:


1) UNSM 1200 (6-8-28) distal end of left femur of an iguanodontid or early hadrosaur from Burt County, near Decatur.

2) UNSM (6-9-32) partial sacrum from a ?hadrosaur from near ?[Peru, Nemaha County]

possibly non-dinosaurian

3) UNSM 93085 a partial tooth from an albertosaur [Theropoda indet.] from gravel originating from a quarry in Gage County, near Holmesville. Stratigraphic setting: Cretaceous, Dakota Sandstone
     cast made for Yale catalog # YPM VP 057175
