Howdy all,

 

This here is a section of theropod bone from Uzbekistan. The seller has labeled it as Timurlengia euotica and I'm curious if that's accurate of if it's from another theropod.

 

Size: 5.6 cm

I'm by no means an expert on dinosaur bones, but in my opinion I wouldn't touch anything like this unless I had absolutely certain information about the exact provenance of this find in order to research the identity. Do you have this information?

Saw this bone too, here is the location according to the description : Uzbekistan, Dzarakuduk, Kyzylkum desert. Im not an expert, but I think, that this will fall to inderterminate bone fragment.

Indet. bone chunk imho.

There are a lot of species from this site still undescribed, so there's a lot of what's not known yet...

And don't forget: the desert is big and a lot of layers from different age are there. With such undiagnostic chunk and no closer infos about the exact place where it was found, there's not a lot what can be said more...
