CatRemarks:
Cataloguer discovered two Tibiotarsus fossils together in a bag alongside Specimen M.84.03.18 in Drawer 719. Examination of the two fossils indicated that the two are each tibiotarsi, however due to the extreme difference in size and robustness, they were each clearly from different individual animals. Specimen numbers B.84.02.18 and B.84.03.18 were assigned to these two specimens.
