Hi I recently found out that my new tyrannosaur species from my topic unknown Tyrannosaur happens to be a new species but not what I thought. It was already known to be a new species for a while. It turns out it's a Daspletosaurus sp., A unnamed Tyrannosaur that Currie recognized years ago to be a new species of Daspletosaurus from the Dinosaur park formation. Still not much research has been done on it. I decided to learn more on the Dinosaur park formation Daspletosaurus sp. But I can't find anything on it, no papers no information, other then a few mentions in some books and study's but that's it. I am wondering if anyone here can help me out with that? Thank you!!
Good to see this put to bed. Abstract says it all...abbreviated... Several published censuses have noted the presence of two tyrannosaurids, Daspletosaurus sp. and Albertosaurus sarcophagus, within the Upper Cretaceous Horseshoe Canyon Formation of Alberta............Although none of these methods individually provides convincing evidence regarding the affinities of the specimen, together (and including other historical and biostratigraphic considerations) they strongly imply that the skeleton instead pertains to a young A. sarcophagus. In this way, we show that only a single species of tyrannosaurid is definitively present in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation..... https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ar.24199#.XRitpqp2V8E.twitter Great photos in this paper...good reference material for use in comparative ID's Example:
