It is probably not possible with a small piece to identify a dinosaur bone to this level.  There is a good discussion of this on the fossil forum:

My only direct experience with dinosaur bones was on a tour of the Gobi desert.  We were told if you licked a rock and it stuck to your lip it was a dinosaur bone, if not it was a stone.  So we spent the afternoon in the desert licking stones.
