AssociatedSpecimens:
Likely associated with Specimen M.78.02.08, although this is merely the Cataloguer's speculation based on the fact that M.78.02.08 was discovered along with P.78.02.08 in Drawer 326 in similar matrix.

CatRemarks:
During examination of this specimen, Drawer 326 revealed one (1) bone fragment with apparent Bore Holes resulting from invertebrate activity. It is probable that this is a taphonomic pathology on this unidentifed bone fragment. The Fragment has been placed, and labeled, into a seperate bag so as to provide researchers with ease of locating this particular fragment within Drawer 326. Additionally, a Mosasaur Jaw Fragment containing two (2) Teeth was located in Drawer 326 along with specimen P.78.02.08, however the Mosasaur Jaw Fragment contains no information. It is not currently known if this Mosasaur Jaw Fragment is in association with P.78.02.08
