I've known about these little dudes for years, but they've always been like the Yeti to me: heard of them, believed in their existence, but never laid eyes on one for myself. Well, this evening I decided to accompany the fam on a walk/bike ride at the park that is two blocks down the road (referenced in previous topics/posts). I've been finding some interesting coral specimens down there lately and was looking fairly close to the ground, somewhat stooping against the gentle slope. . . . and there she was! In all of her 9 mm of chalky limestone beauty! My wife's comment was "I don't understand how you even see those tiny little things." I replied, "well, for the past 11 years, I haven't!" 11 August 2019 Salenia texana (in matrix) Lower Cretaceous Commanche Peak fm. Western Bell County, Texas, USA
