CatRemarks:
Some of the Material belonging to this specimen was sent as an Exchange Loan to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Drumheller, Alberta. The CFDC maintains casts of the Material On Loan within the CFDC Collection Room. The accession number for the original material at the Royal Tyrrell Museum is: TMP1984.162.0004 All of the 10+ Gastroliths listed in the 1992 original paper catalogue as belonging to this specimen are not presently located within the CFDC Collection Room. Some are possibly on Display in the CFDC Main Exhibit Hall (~34 Gastroliths are currently On Display, 10 of which could possibly belong to P.78.03.08 although this is only the Cataloguer's speculation), or some or all of the Gastroliths belonging to P.78.03.08 could be On Loan to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. The whereabouts of these Gastroliths are currently unknown.
