Hi Chuck–If we could get a group of Pleistocene mammals (optimally at least 6 specimens for statistics), like Equus, from Belgrade then these could be compared to the chemical fingerprint of the supposed early Miocene fossils from the same site. This uses rare earth elements. I’ve done this successfully on several occasions, including with Florida Titanis, as you can see in the attached article.
Linda–do you think that any of your members also have Pleistocene mammals from Belgrade?
Dave–in the SI collections?
See you soon. Bruce
