Well said.  There was much more to it than just collecting, you also had to recognize it was something different.  And then you had to know to have a professional look at it.  And then be willing to donate it for study.  Well done!

Just a little update on this ammonite. It is indeed a new species (in the process of being described) and "is the first record of Parapuzosia (Austiniceras) in the Cenomanian of North America".

A first for New Mexico was cool, but a first for North America is ice cold. :)

I'm so jelly! :P

 

It's not every day you get to be the first to discover a species! Awesome!
