@Jared C Mike is by far the best person to study this find. He’s the leading expert on squamates in the area and is a great guy.

 

Co-authoring would be really cool. I’ve been referenced as the preparator/discoverer for a few new species in papers but haven’t co-authored one yet. The only downside to being an author on the description is the naming criteria. It is considered bad form to name a new species after one of the authors. If this winds up being a new species, you might be taking yourself out of the running for having it named after you.

 

That being said, maybe I should hold it for ransom until it’s named after me! I could go for another howei on the books. :default_rofl:
 

Thanks for bringing this to me for the initial prep. It was a fun project.

We certainly keep @Ptychodus04 busy. Kris did a great job preparing this crinoid cup with three partial associated arms that I found earlier this month. In honor of his great work and my excitement finding the fossil, I enter it into this month's invertebrate fossil of the month competition. Since I won't receive it back until after the close of the competition, I have stolen Kris's photos of the fossil. I hope he doesn't mind.
