Discovery of a new Eocene crab, Matutites collinsi

Very cool! :thumbsu:

 

That will be a fossil club trip to the quarry that you won't soon forget. Always a good day when you find an interesting fossil--even better when it is a Scientifically Important Specimen (SIS).

 

If you would, could you please add this specimen to our Fossil Contributions to Paleontology Gallery where we keep track of the awesome specimens our members are sharing with museums or universities to further our collective fossil knowledge:

 

http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/102935-fossil-contributions-to-paleontology-the-gallery/

 

Please follow the format and guidelines below when posting in this topic:

Common or Scientific Name.
Geologic Formation or Geologic Age.
Region the fossil was found.
Museum or University that received the fossil.
A short note explaining the reason for the fossil contribution. Please include a link to the topic about your fossil (if available).
(attach your fossil photos here)

 

 

Cheers.

Thanks @digit! Yes, it was certainly a memorable day. There is no better feeling in this hobby (at least for me) than being able to contribute to our scientific understanding of the past.

Congratulations! :yay-smiley-1: Fossil forum members seem to be quite active at discovering new crab species.  Good job, and thanks for being generous about donating this for publication.  Even better that you are a coauthor!

I agree! Now if I could just find a fossil worthy of scientific contribution...:look:
 

My hunt continues, but I’m glad you were able to find something! Congrats on the awesome find and thanks for expanding our scientific knowledge!
