Losing the Paper
Stromer's fossils were lost during World War II. His papers describing the fossils are not lost, but are conspicuously absent from the internet as a whole (as far as I can tell). The descriptions have been evoked many times over, including descriptions of species discovered in Mangrove swamps in northern Africa. The species in particular in the above link is an earlier described dinosaur here, Paralititan. Morphometrics have also used Aegyptosaurus to describe titanosaurs in general. It makes for a very technical, but interesting paper. I'm sharing this today because there is no video for movie Monday. Tomorrow I will make up for moving things ahead a day!
