CatRemarks:
Specimen was originally recorded as belonging to the Genus "Trinacromerum" by Betsy Nicholls in the 1992 original paper catalogue. Later, after preparation of the lower jaws, it was identified by Jim Garnder as "Dolichorhynchops". Further investigation by CFDC Curator Anita-Maria Janzic at the time of this specimen's entry into the CFDC digital database confirmed the specimen as "Dolichorhynchops".
