CatRemarks:
A hand written note in the original paper catalogue and also in the Loans File mentions that one other plaster jacket, also located on Shelf 1-3, was being prepared by a Mr. Ken Fumerton. During examination of this specimen, additional fossil material labeled as M.75.05.06 was observed (skull elements) in Drawer 195 which does not appear in the itemized descrciption in the original paper catalogue. It is therefore assumed that these skull elements were prepared from the second plaster jacket from Shelf 1-3.
