Great find!

This happens more than people might realize! Some paleontologists don't spend much time in teh field, they just look at stuff that is in backroom collections at museums. The American Museum of Natural History, for example, only even displays 10% of its collections, so you can imagine the sheer volume of stuff in these storage cabinets and rooms. Often stuff just gets looked at by a researcher who unpacked in decades ago, who makes a note, and puts it into a log book.

John Ostrom, who is basically the guy responsible for people thinking dinosaurs as something more than big plodding lizards, managed to actually find a specimin of the rare Archaeopteryx, but not in the field, he found it in a museum, it had been collected before the original Archaeopteryx find and wasn't recognized as being especially important! It had just been sitting there for decades!

There are lots more fossils in the ground, and there are a heckuva lot in storage that aren't understood.

I'm more interested in all the dinasours not found. They discover new ones all the time, and I always find it interesting. Recently they found a dinasour that linked birds and dinasours closer, so very interesting, keep on posting.

There've actually been a lot of new discoveries that connect birds and dinosaurs, to the point now that its widely accepted amoung scientists that birds are just a particular type of dinosaur.

This site:

Is a paleoillustration site, but the guy that does the work is actually very well informed on the latest discoveries and analyses. Its also a neat page to browse to familiarize one's self with these things!
