There were two Ischyrhiza species in the occurrences of New Jersey, apart of Ankistrorhyncus major, of the Maastrichtian sclerorhynchid swafishes : I. mira and I. avonicola, according to

I myself have only found very small ones, and only one in pristine condition. Then again I don't get out there multiple times a week like some people. (Hint, hint). I have seen pictures of a couple that size coming from there, but not a whole one.

Well, I guess it depends on how large your hand is (not a political joke).  I hear about "heartbreaker" specimens of these from North Carolina and Texas and I have certainly seen less-identifiable specimens than that one.  Texas collectors keep even the broken ones that would have been close to 2 inches or larger when complete because they are rare enough as they are and you should keep that one.  It's definitely a cool find because it gives you a real indicator of the size range.
