  1. Mongolostegus paper

    Hi, Does anyone have a copy of this paper: T. A. Tumanova & V. R. Alifanov (2018) First Record of Stegosaur (Ornithischia, Dinosauria) from the Aptian-Albian of Mongolia. Paleontological Journal 52(14): 1771-1779. DOI: https://doi.org/10.1134/S0031030118140186 https://link.springer.com/article/10.1134/S0031030118140186 If a copy is available, then I'd appreciate it if they send me one, because of the high cost of purchasing online access at Springer.com, but also because it's clear that Mongolostegus is the stegosaur that Ulansky informally named "Wuerhosaurus mongoliensis".

  13. Hi all, I have come across numerous theropod eggshells sold as "Oviraptor from Mongolia" through the years. Mostly, I pay them no heed. As I am aware, whole Oviraptor eggs from Mongolia are in fact Elongatoolithus sp. eggs from Guangdong or other parts of China. True Mongolian eggs are very rare. What about these eggshells though? My guess is that thousands of them come out of China, the same way as the eggs and egg nests. But then again, eggshells are more common, and is it that implausible for some of them to be Mongolian in origin? I label mine as being from China, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on this.
  14. So it was found from Gobi desert and i don't know which dinosaur's bone is this. I have one tibia bone and one backbone, also one more bone from tail or something...? does someone have an idea?
  15. Hi all, I have here what was claimed to be an Alioramus tooth with jaw fragment from the Nemegt Formation. The entire fossil measures 2.6 inches tall, and the crown section is 1.4 inches tall. I haven't had much cause to suspect its authenticity as I knew the dealer obtained a stock of Nemegt Formation fossils, and another expert I trust examined the pictures and determined it is authentic, but was broken and re-attached. Recently however, another expert I trust claimed that this is in fact a Kem Kem crocodile based off the pitting of the jaw, the thinness of the jaw which matches a croc rather than theropod profile, and the coarse red gravel seen underneath the fossil (as I am aware, Nemegt fossils are covered in red sand too), and the so-called crown isn't even a tooth. What are your thoughts on this?
