        For the record, this one is in print (not on the allmighty Web), but
not published:

Wagner, J. R. 2001. The hadrosaurian dinosaurs (Ornithischia: Hadrosauria)
of Big Bend National Park, Brewster County, Texas, with implications for
Late Cretaceous paleozoogeography. Unpublished M.S. thesis, Texas Tech
University. xvi + 417 pp.

        The specific case is Saurolophidae (n. comb.), which is included
within Hadrosauridae. I almost nested a genus between a genus, but held off
(for now). It really isn't worth ILLing... I'll publish the nomenclature
soon enough anyway. For trivia buffs, to my knowledge, this is the only
thesis from TTU to ever incorporate Phylogenetic Nomenclature... a point not
lost on the author's committee.
