AssociatedSpecimens:
It is possible that this vertebra actually belongs to specimen F.09.03.13 as it is from the same layer within the lower unit of the Gammon Ferruginous and from the same site, however found 4 years later and on the west bank of the ditch. Thus for now this vertebra is accessioned individually.
