Abstract

DINOSAUR FROM THE CRETACEOUS OF MISSOURI

BY E. B. BRANSON

In Bollinger County, Missouri, near the village of Lutesville, dinosaur caudal vertebrae were found in the spring of 1942. Only eight vertebrae were recovered, and they were in the clays of a filled sink in Lower Ordovician rocks. According to the owner of the land, who found the bones, the first one was encountered at a depth of 4 feet, and the last at a depth of 17 feet.

Geologists of the State of Missouri Geological Survey and Water Resources had identified patches of nonmarine sediments in the region as Cretaceous. Marine Cretaceous crops out about 20 miles southeast of Lutesville.

The author is unable to determine to which family of dinosaurs the vertebrae belong.
