There is no mention on any USCIS form that we must send 485 receipt when applying for AOS. We can mention it if we have.
I was advised by many to send a covering letter mentioning 140 receipt number and a copy of the 140 receipt.

Even if they want 485 receipt number USCIS should send you a RFE asking to send a copy of the 485 receipt. If you have attorney consult him.
