Re: Giant theropod eggs from Cretaceous of South Korea
From: Ben Creisler
A quick correction to the authors. I didn't delete the uppercase
author link "c" at the end of D. Jade Simo when I copied the material
from the webpage. My apologies. The corrected spelling is below:
Min Huh, Bo Seong Kim, Yeon Woo, D. Jade Simo, In Sung Paik & Hyun
Joo Kim (2014)
First record of a complete giant theropod egg clutch from Upper
Cretaceous deposits, South Korea.
