Thanks for replying.  If you are offering a scan of the DWOT  that would 
be greatly appreciated.  If you are referring to the FMB articles I did 
tracked those down on-line. I don't know if the DWOT has much more than 
was in the FMB but it seems to be rather long (27 pages) so it might be 
more informative. I am aware of the Tullimonstrum hoax and in fact am 
preparing a post for my blog Land of the Dead about it.  Appropriate for 
April 1 and a good nature prank rather than malicious a la Beringer and 
the Piltdown mess.
