Bill Thompson posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI published the book Fossil Echinoids of Texas last November. Since that time other people have come forward or found new species. I am currently working to add and addendum to that book. Currently in have 5 new species that will be included in the addendum. Included are 2 new Salenias (1 from the Weno and 1 from the Glen rose), 2 Cidarid spines, 1 new Tiaromma. If you have any Texas echinoids that might be new, I would love to study it (them) and if it is new, I would gladly add that specimen to the publication. Please give me a call and we can talk about it. I live in New Braunfels. Bill Thompson www.echinoids.com
Hi Here's a selection of news links to the new Welsh Dinosaur that was found by Nick Hanigan and Rob Hanigan in South Wales, UK There are lots of stories out there. We made all the UK newspapers yesterday, we were trending on Twitter and the BBC website in the top stories. We made most news bulletins throughout the day and appeared on a number of radio and TV shows. The story seems to be slowly filtering overseas as we've had reports from Europe and the US.
