EDIT: Doh! Just a few more minutes of searching and I found it. Never mind. I have been trying to find this paper on a nodosaurid scuteling from the Paw Paw Formation of Texas with no luck. Does anyone have access to it? Jacobs LL, Winkler DW, Murry PA, Maurice JM. A nodosaurid scuteling from the Texas shore of the Western Interior Seaway. In: Carpenter K, Hirsch KF, Horner J editors.

I just got it last week and h
I made another trip to my favorite hillside today, but went to a different area of the hill that I hadn't been to yet this year.

Therefore, I have to get "my fix" close to home. Also, the variety I find at this site always keep me coming back. It seems I find something new for my collection on a regular basis. These were all found in and below the pyrite layer. I
