While browsing the Dinosaur Mailing List, I came upon a news article regarding Dystrophaeus:

With respect to the discovery of Dystrophaeus in 1859, it is noteworthy that the discoverer, John Newberry, couldn't excavate the whole skeleton of this species because of the difficult terrain, but at least was able to recover some bones, all from the forelimb and scapular regions, and loan them to the Natural History Museum of the Smithsonian in Washington DC. Now the Dystrophaeus Project crew has continued where Newberry left off, and we're hoping they have unearthed all parts of the Dystrophaeus skeleton so that they can be shipped to the Natural History Museum and united with the holotype specimen of Dystrophaeus.

Although the excavations are ongoing, you can find images at the following links:
