    Apalone Heteroglypta was described by Edward Cope in 1873 but was originally called Trionyx Heteroglypta. It was later renamed when a more complete skeleton was discovered. It is very distinguishable from all other soft-shelled turtles from Fossil Lake because of its rounded shell, and the near full loss of the eighth costal bones. It is a very rare find and is one of the most beautiful turtles from the Fossil Butte Member of the Green River Formation.

    Left coracoid of a young hadrosaur from the Judith River formation. Both lambeosaurine and saurolophine hadrosaurs are present in the Judith River formation. I would lean towards this coracoid belonging to a lambeosaurine hadrosaur. In this case Lambeosaurus or Corythosaurus would be good candidates.

    The thecae are more closely packed and shorter than in the similar Paradelograptus. Useful paper, with graptolite illustrations (Fig. 5), here: The Lower Ordovician Fezouata Konservat-Lagerst├Ątte from Morocco
