Nice find!  This one needs to go into the Partners In Paleontology section so you can get the recognition you richly deserve!

Nice! Who knows what interesting fossils are hiding in our collections? Spectacular that your curiosity on this unusual specimen turned out to be verified by the experts. Though you already have your PaleoPartner award badge, it would be a good idea to add this into the growing topic of donated fossils as Joe suggested above.

 

 

Cheers.

That is exciting, John. Congratulations. I agree you should add it to the Partners in Paleontology section, as you have before, as yet another example of the valuable cooperation possible between amateur collectors and professional paleontologists. @Auspex will be proud, I'm sure, and deservedly so.

Thanks everyone and I'll start a partner's post now. I'm amused that I've collected from the Peace for this long, hoping and hoping for a vertebrate fossil that Richard Hulbert would value enough to request, while absent-mindedly bagging these invertebrates as an afterthought. Life is a mystery!

Very cool. Thanks for sharing. It almost looks like the bottom of a turtle. Interesting.

Echinoids run neck and neck with ammonites as my favorite and most sought after/hunted fossils. I haven’t come across any so big as that or of that look anything even remotely like that on though.

Well Done, John!
By your ability to recognize the possible value of 'something different', and contributing an important specimen to science, you do us all proud.

Hi Ron!

A paratype is a supporting specimen to the holotype (which is the specimen described to erect a new species).

I've been terribly homesick for the Forum and all my friends here. I hope to be able to hang out more, as I am physically able.:)
