Stenodactylina rogerfurzei (Schweigert 2012)


5cm. long. Needless to say I'm happy with this little crab chela. It's not every day that a new species gets named after yourself. Found in September 2012 on a lucky split in the upper Aalenian layers at the Scheffheu location in the Wutach valley. Achdorf Formation, bradfordensis zone, staufensis bank. It's now residing in a holotype cabinet in the collection at the Stuttgart Museum of Natural History. I have received a mold of it for posterity.
