Hypsilophodon vert?

Recommended Posts

From IoW. Small..

 

I'm looking to add a few verts to my collection. This is one I am eyeing. If it passes muster.

 

Thanks for the help

This does not look like a tail vert like the label indicates, more of a dorsal, no attachment points for chevrons. 

 

Not very not very familiar with these verts,  found this old plate of H. foxii you can compare against.  (Hulke 1882)

 

Cervical 1 thru 10, Dorsal 11-12,  caudal 13

Cheers. I'll have a closer look after work.

 

At first glance though, it doesn't look long enougj to be a hypsi dorsal from fig 11 and 12. They seem quite squat and the one for sale isnt.

I found a pic of verts from Argentina, Notahypsilophodon (amazing name for a dino. It's a hypsilophodon, but not. Brilliant)

 

And this looks similar enough to me to say it is a Hypsi vert.

Noto means southern lol. For example, Giganotosaurus means "giant southern lizard", Notohypsilophodon means "Southern high crested tooth" (actually Hypsilophodon's name is in reference to Hypsilophus, the formerly used genus for the iguana and was being used in the same way as Iguanodon). 

 

I believe @Jaimin013 posted a similar one in his collection either on instagram or on the forum a while back.

It's somewhat similar to a Thescelosaurus vertebra I found in Wyoming, so it could be from an animal like Hypsilophodon.

Interesting, I never knew that. I just thought thr scientists were having a bit of fun lol. 

 

I checked out @Jaimin013 s vert and Thescelo verts. Looks good to me, so I'm gonna add Hypsi to my buy list. 

 

Thanks for the help.

Haha, sorry, didn't know you were on here :)

 

I always double check the rarer fossils--haven't seen a hypsi vert for sale before. 

 

I've got my eye on your UK theropod vert too. That looks awesome. And the herrerasaur vert.

This is a caudal and IMO different than the one you are looking at.

Oh, I thought the shape--flattish ends, concave middle and that sort of pinch at the top made a decent likeness.

 

Guess I need to look harder at the little details. Cheers :)

sadly I presumed that it was a tail caudal due to the small size. It was definitely collected from the hypsilophodon  bed on the isle of wight and the shape and histology is consistent with other hypsilophodon vertebrae I have had in stock previously.
