[Just a reminder about posting to the Dinosaur Mailing List--the email address was changed to dinosaur-l@usc.edu. The old address (dinosaur@usc.edu) without the inserted hyphen + lowercase "L" (for 'list') no longer works. Some people appear to still have the older address as the default in their email setups and are contacting me when their posts get bounced. Friendly New Year's Resolution suggestion--update DML address!]

Some recent items:


Lost Urumchia skull returned to China


Urumchia lii (Early Triassic therocephalian therapsid) holotype skull (long thought lost after being mistakenly sent to paleontologist Christiane C. Mendrez (1937-1978) in France instead of a cast, during the period of the Cultural Revolution) was recently relocated at the French National Museum of Natural History and now has been returned to China (in Chinese)
